Minister of the Federal Captial Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, has donated over 60 motorcycles to the Department of State Services (DSS) and Vigilance Group of Nigeria (VGN).

Wike also gave 30 motorcycles to the police and five each to the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

The minister, at the handover yesterday, warned that the motorcycles must not be used in townships but in hard-to-reach parts of the territory to fight insecurity.

He urged the VGN to use the motorcycles to assist the police and other security agencies in combating crimes, particularly in the rural areas. Wike thanked the group for its selfless sacrifices to secure lives and property in the nation’s capital.

He said: “Remember that security agencies requested for specialized motorcycles that will be used particularly in the rural areas. The vigilance teams will use them in the six Area Councils, and then the Police, the SSS, and the Civil Defence will also want to do theirs.

“Let me caution, particularly the security agencies, I don’t want to hear stories tomorrow that the motorcycles are nowhere to be found again. I don’t want to hear such stories, because sometimes when you give out vehicles, before you know it, the vehicles are no longer there. Please utilize these motorcycles to fight crime in the areas you have identified.

“Ordinarily, the Chairmen of the Area Councils ought to handle this, but this is our support to them in the councils. Make sure these motorcycles are given out to the vigilance teams.

“I don’t want to see the motorcycles in the city here. It should be used in the rural areas. We are already trying to phase out motorcycles here, so please let it be taken to the rural areas. All the security agencies, the outposts, give it to them. We do not want to continue to hear excuses that the terrain is so bad, they require this and that and they have not been given. Now that you have been given, these may not be enough, we will continue to provide more.

“For vehicles, we believe by the next two weeks, the vehicles would have been ready to give out to the security agencies. For us, we will not relent until those who say we will not sleep, they too will also not sleep”.
