Insecurity: Wike meets heads of security agencies, traditional leaders

FCT Minister Nyesom Wike has convened an urgent security meeting in response to the deteriorating security situation in the nation’s capital.

Reports of bandits breaking into homes and abducting residents have led to heightened concern.

Earlier this week, several residents, including a 13-year-old secondary school student, were killed due to failure to meet ransom demands.
