The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Special Task Team on City Management has made a major breakthrough in its fight against criminal activities as it impounded 56 bags of hard drugs. The FCT Permanent Secretary, John Obinna Chukwu, disclosed this after a recent meeting with the members of the Task Team in his office. Chukwu said that the Task Team discovered the hard drugs in a depot during its covert operation at Tura-Bura, behind Apo Roundabout.


He said: “The FCTA is gladdened by the proactive activity of the Task Team for this major discovery which would go a long way in reducing crime in all its ramifications in Abuja and environs.

"These 56 bags of cannabis and sundry hard drugs seized by the FCT Task Team will surely have positive multiplier effects on the fight against criminal activities in Abuja because most crimes are committed under the influence of hard drugs”.

The Permanent Secretary disclosed that the cannabis and sundry hard drugs were surreptitiously kept in a bunker by the suspects but was uncovered, thanks to the vigilance of members of the team.

While commending the team, Chukwu seized the opportunity to challenge the team to re-dedicate itself to an onerous task of riding Abuja of all environmental nuisances and criminal activities.

He called for cooperation and understanding of all the residents of the Nation's Capital in the Administration’s bid to make Abuja crime-free.

Furthermore, he enjoined the residents to always assist security agents by providing information about criminal hideouts and of suspicious person (s) or movements to the appropriate authorities in order to nip in the bud their nefarious activities.
