Following rising cases of kidnapping in Abuja, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Malam Muhammad Bello, on Wednesday ordered the deployment of CCTV cameras with recording facilities in all estates in the nation’s capital.

He mandated all estates in the territory to deploy solar lights on their perimeter fences and along streets.

The minister, who disclosed this at the commissioning of the Cosgrove Smart Estate, Wuye, said: “Our focus would be ensuring that estates are managed properly to the benefit of the residents. Accordingly, greater emphasis would be placed on security and environmental matters.

“It would be made mandatory for every estate in the FCT to deploy CCTV cameras with recording facilities and solar lights on perimeter fences and along the streets in the estates. Each estate would be expected to employ the services of reputable companies registered by the Abuja Environmental Protection Board (AEPB).

“I wish to remind estate developers that 40 per cent of the FCT is intended to be green. This is even more critical now as we battle climate change,” he said.

According to a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Anthony Ogunleye, the minister urged estate owners to make adequate provisions for gardens and parks.
