The minister reiterated that the Federal Capital Territory was safe and called on residents not to leave security matters to the law enforcement agencies alone.
According to him, it is almost impossible for security agencies to be everywhere one hundred per cent.
“So every resident in a way is also a security officer. it is very important for residents to be vigilant and to be very conscious of their personal security”
“If for instance, you see a vehicle without a number plate, it means that vehicle is not registered and can be used for criminal activities, please report to the relevant authorities,” he said.
Bello said that in comparison to several cities around the world, FCT remained quite safe.
