Repent or get killed, Wike warns kidnappers in FCT
Barrister Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, has warned kidnappers and their informants disrupting the peace of the nations capital to repent or get killed by security operatives.
He gave the warning in Kuje while rounding off his town hall meetings with relevant stakeholders across the six area councils.
He said, “We are going to tackle insecurity head-on. These bandits and criminals, their time is up. I know some of the criminal informants are here listening to me; if you are an informant, you will die the same way those people you are informing will die.
“You have the opportunity of repenting today or else you are gone. Nobody will pity you. You have seen what the security agencies have been doing in the past few days. That is to show to you that it is not busy as usual.
“Be fully aware that we are ready for you. I told the chairman to make sure that the vigilance groups are empowered and we must do it well. They must be profiled and the security agencies must know them,” the minister added.
The former governor urged residents of the area councils to play their role in providing relevant information that would help security agencies.
He said, “And to the residents, give us information. You must work with the security agencies and provide them with information.
“Do not be afraid. I have seen this problem before, and I will tackle it. Let me assure you that no amount of blackmail will stop us from carrying out our assignment.”
While bemoaning the bad state of roads in Kuje Area Council, Mr Wike vowed to revisit the Council’s file and construct motorable roads for the the people.
“This is my first time of coming to Kuje, and I couldn’t believe that the major roads are not constructed. They say God’s time is the best, God’s time has come for you. I will go back and revisit the file. Be assured that you will see changes in this area council.
“Today, we will go back and take those projects and complete them for you. It is not that we are doing you any good, you are entitled to it. We are not doing anything extraordinary. It is our job and we will be faithful to it,” he said.
