FCT Denies Imposition Of Curfew


The FCT administration has clarified that curfew had not been imposed in any part of the Federal Capital Territory.

A statement by the FCT Administration said that it has been inundated with several calls on whether curfew had been imposed in Abuja despite clarification by the FCT Police Commissioner, Mr. Haruna John.

The Administration reiterated that it is the responsibility of the government to impose curfew when the need arises and had at no time done that.

The FCT Security Committee with memberships cut across the Nigeria Police Force, the Department of State Security Services as well as the Nigerian Army, Nigerian Air Force and the Nigerian Navy met with the operators of recreational facilities where it was agreed that adequate security measures will be put in place to guarantee the safety of lives and property.

The Administration  emphasised that operators of recreational facilities must maintain high degree of security consciousness, environmental cleanliness and decency.

The FCT Administration therefore urged residents of the Federal Capital Territory to go about their normal lawful businesses.

The Administration thanked the residents of the Federal Capital Territory for their understanding and solicits for continued cooperation. Let’s be vigilant to make our society safe and secured.
