Repent or die, Wike warns kidnappers, informants, other criminals in FCT

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, has issued a stern warning to informants of kidnappers, bandits and criminals in the territory to repent or die in the hands of security operatives.


Wike issued the warning on Saturday at a town hall security meeting, held in Kuje town in Kuje Area Council of the territory.

He also urged residents of the Area Council to play their role in providing relevant information that would help security agencies.

He said: “We are going to tackle insecurity head-on. These bandits and criminals, their time is up. I know some of the criminal informants are here listening to me and if you are an informant, you will die the same way those people you are informing will die.


“You have the opportunity of repenting today or else you are gone. Nobody will pity you. You have seen what the security agencies have been doing in the past few days. That is to show to you that it is not business as usual.

“Be fully aware that we are ready for you. I told the Chairman to make sure that the vigilance groups are empowered and we must do it well. They must be profiled and the security agencies must know them. And to the residents, give us information. You must work with the security agencies and provide them with information.

“Do not be afraid. I have seen this problem before, and I will tackle it. Let me assure you that no amount of blackmail will stop us from carrying out our assignment.”

The minister also expressed shock at the state of roads in Kuje Area Council, vowing that he would revisit the Council’s file and construct motorable roads for the the people.
