Residents of Kubwa in Bwari Area Council of the FCT have decried the spate of accidents and other criminal activities allegedly perpetrated by commercial motorcyclists operating in the area, and called for their replacement with tricycles popularly called Keke NAPEP.
The residents made the submission during the monthly security meeting of all relevant stakeholders and corporate institutions in the area tagged, ‘Kubwa Community Safety Partnership Meeting’ organised by the police in the area.
They also stressed the need for the use of reflective jackets by the motorcycle operators as well as enforcement of registered plate numbers for proper identification, saying such steps would go a long way in minimising the incessant cases of crime in the community.
Earlier, the Kubwa Area Commander, ACP Arungwa Nwueze, expressed satisfaction with the level of cooperation his team and other security operatives enjoy from the residents, especially in providing useful information to the police.
Attributing the reduction of criminal activities in the area to such collaboration, the police boss called for further synergy between the residents and the police, assuring of the force’s determination to redouble its efforts in providing the needed peace and security in the area, especially as Christmas approaches.
Also speaking, the Kubwa Divisional Police Officer, Chief Superintendent Nuruddeen Sabo, listed the successes recorded by the force in the past one month to include reduction in cases of handbag snatching, theft of parked cars, and other crimes through the arrest and prosecution of criminals involved in the acts.
He enjoined the residents to always make use of the emergency lines 0903983594, 08036549277 in times of distress.
