The Department of Security Services, DSS, has said the FCT has recorded improved security within one year of President Bola Tinubu-led administration.

The Director of the department in the Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA, Adamu Gwary, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja on Tuesday.

Gwary told NAN while assessing the performance of Tinubu-led administration on security in the FCT, that the impact was impressive, considering the reduced incidents of security breaches.

According to him, the security situation has significantly improved since Nyesom Wike assumed office as the FCT Minister in August 2023.

“We receive not only a situational report from security agencies, but from members of the public.

“In the past, it used to be a daily affair where you will hear there are these issues, there are those issues, here and there, within the city, the environs, and the suburbs of the FCT.

“But today, sometimes a whole week will pass without any report.

“We have an interface with traditional rulers, who give us intelligence reports, which we process and forward to responsible security agencies, but this has really died down.

“Also, if you recall, the issue of theft of manhood was at its peak at the commencement of the Tinubu-led Administration, but that has been completely addressed.

“This is not to say that we are there, but the improvement is very visible in terms of the reduced number of reported cases of criminal activities,” he said.

He attributed the successes to the proactiveness of the FCT minister through intensive community engagement and provision of logistics and equipment support to security agencies.
