David Aigbefoh, the Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Gwagwalada branch in Abuja, has called for increased security surveillance in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Aigbefoh spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in reaction to reports that suspected terrorists were planning to attack selected targets in the nation’s capital.

The lawyer said there is an urgent need for security agencies to step up surveillance, especially aerial surveillance with the use of drones.

He referred to intelligence that some of the perpetrators responsible for crimes in Kaduna have extended their operations to Abuja.

Aigbefoh quoted a 2020 report by SB Morgen wherein the FCT ranked 11th among places where abductions have been recorded.

“The report also said at least 18.84 million dollars was paid as ransoms to various kidnappers across the country in 2020″, he said.

Noting that the FCT remains the safest part of Nigeria, being the seat of power, he called for more deployment of police patrol teams to strategic locations.

Aigbefoh listed areas including Keffi, Lokoja-Abuja Road, up to Gwagwalada, Tungan Maje, Zuba, among others.

“Security is everybody’s concern, all hands should be on deck to ensure the protection of lives and property in all the communities in and around Abuja,” he added.
