The Member representing AMAC/Bwari Federal Constituency of the FCT, Hon Joshua Obika, has disclosed that arrangements are being put in place to build a police area command office to checkmate banditry and kidnapping around Kawu, Shere and Igu communities in Bwari Area Council.

Obika, while speaking when he hosted the Sarkin Bwari and the Etsu Bwari, Awwal Musa Ija-Koro and Ibrahim Yaro (JP), respectively in his office at the National Assembly on Monday, said he would be liaise with the FCT Commissioner of Police (CP), Benneth Igweh, in order to ensure that a befitting area command was set up in the axis.

He also disclosed that plans were being put in place to organise a security summit in Bwari with traditional rulers, village/district heads, community leaders and youth groups from Kawu, Shere and Igu communities in order to deliberate on how to synergise with security agencies to enhance security operations in the three communities being ravaged by banditry.

He further said, “I want to assure your royal highnesses that we are also liaising with the FCTA mandate secretary for transport to see how we can provide motorcycles to vigilantes in these communities.”

Obika declared support for the establishment of state police in the country, describing it as an antidote to the security challenges in the country.

He, therefore, called on the federal government to use the FCT as a pilot state to launch the state police.

He also called on the government to provide grazing reserves in order to tackle the incessant clashes between farmers and herders in his constituency.
