The Administration of the capital of Nigeria, Abuja, has restated the banning of begging, street hawking, cattle grazing and commercial motorcycle (Okada) in the city.

The FCT Minister, Muhammad Bello, said this after an emergency FCT Security Committee meeting held in Abuja on Monday.

According to him, the FCT Administration will continue to collaborate with the security agencies to ensure that the ban is made effective.

Bello said that the institutions must be strengthened to carry out their statutory duties in line with the Change agenda of the Federal Government.

He, however, commended the security community in the FCT for the high-level intelligence sharing that had so far assisted the administration to nip in the bud any security breach in the territory.

The committee condemned the illegal attempt by some criminals who stormed the Vocational and Rehabilitation Centre, Kuchiko in Bwari Area Council, trying to rescue some of the inmates following the arrest of 687 beggars/destitute.

The committee also decried the illegal use of uncompleted buildings by destitute people, miscreants and criminals in the city, warning that owners of such property would be held responsible for any security breach traced to their property.

The minister reiterated that owners of such uncompleted buildings must provide security in and around such property and also ensure the cleanliness of the surrounding areas.
