The Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps FCT Command has deployed 3,500 officers and men to the nooks and crannies of the Capital Territory to checkmate activities of men of the underworld during and after the forth coming Eid -el Kabir festival.
The deployment is not unconnected with security unrest associated with such festivities across the FCT and its environs.
The FCT commandant Peter Maigari who disclosed this in a press briefing in his office is optimistic that with the current operational strategy being implored by the FCT Command, criminals and their cohorts will have no hiding place in the Federal Capital Territory.
Commandant Maigari assured that places of worship, recreational Parks and other places of interest will be fully guarded by personnel of the Corps, urging residents to feel free and go about their activities without any iota of fear.
While wishing the Muslim faithfuls a happy Eid El KABIR celebration, the commandant consequently appealed to all residents of the FCT to play according to the rules and report any suspicious person or persons to the nearest security agencies of government.
He maintained that the Corps has Zero tolerance to vandalism of critical National Assets and will not hesitate to bring the full weight of the law against anyone caught tempering with government installations.
Commandant Maigari has accordingly called on parents and guidance to educate their wards on the dangers of vandalism and other negative vices.
