Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Malam Muhammad Musa Bello has given marching order to traditional ruler to work with relevant security operatives to apprehend all the escapees from the Kuje Correctional Centre (Prison) during a violent attack carried out by terrorists last night, July 5.
The minister, who visited the facility today, July 6, for an on-the-spot assessment of damage after the attack, called on the Gomo of Kuje, Haruna Tanko Jibrin to summon all traditional chiefs in Kuje Area Council to combine intelligence with security agencies to fish out the escaped inmates from the community.
He called on members of the communities to provide appropriate intelligence to the security agencies to enable them do their work, even as he expressed confidence that, with maximum cooperation from the communities, all those who escaped would be traced, found and brought back since no one could go into any community and blend without being spotted by members of the community.
The minister described the incident as very sad and unfortunate, saying that such incidents threaten everybody, hence the need for everyone to support the security agencies in carrying out their assignments.
He said that efforts are being made to strengthen security, not only around the facility, but the Kuje Area Council and other parts of the territory.
