The new Federal Capital Territory Commissioner of Police, Mr. Babaji Sunday, yesterday read the riot act to criminals in the territory, warning them to repent or face the full wrath of the law.
He spoke yesterday at his maiden media briefing after assuming office last week. Sunday took over from AIG Bala Ciroma, who was promoted recently and redeployed to Zone 7 Police Headquarters, Abuja.
“I will consolidate on the legacies of my predecessor by ensuring that we enhance proactive intelligence-based crime fighting strategies to nip crime in the bud within the FCT.
“Without mincing words, I want to state categorically that no criminal elements will be tolerated within the FCT, hence, anyone with criminal intentions should either repent or be prepared to face the full wrath of the law,” he said.
The new CP said “the command must synergise with all stakeholders bearing in mind that security is everyone’s business, nonetheless, I am confident that the already existing collaboration with the Federal Capital Territory Administration, sister security agencies, key community stakeholders and the media will definitely aid the fight against crime within the FCT.” The commissioner further stated that the primary responsibility of the command remained delivery of security services to the residents of FCT.
“It would be recalled that I assumed office on Friday, August 6, 2021 as the 28th Commissioner of Police in the FCT following the promotion and redeployment of my predecessor AIG. Bala Ciroma to Zone 7 Headquarters.
“Therefore, I want to use this medium to restate that, the fundamental responsibility of the command remains to ensure the delivery of quality security services to residents and stakeholders of the Federal Capital Territory,” he said.
He assured FCT residents of the determination of the command to protect lives and property.
“I want to reassure members of the command’s undeterred resolve to protect lives and property within the FCT. “However, I would crave the indulgence of the well-meaning residents of the FCT to promptly report any suspicious movements or emergency, as we have circulated our distress call lines in the media and placed them at strategic locations within the city,” he said.
