Chief Press Secretary to the Minister, Anthony Ogunleye in a statement in Abuja, said Bello gave the advice at the meeting of the FCT Security Committee.

Ogunleye said this comprised the Heads of the Police, Military and Para Military formations in the FCT, Area Council Chairmen and religious leaders.

The minister reiterated that the Federal Capital Territory was safe and called on residents not to leave security matters to the law enforcement agencies alone.

According to him, it is almost impossible for security agencies to be everywhere one hundred per cent.

Bello said that in comparison to several cities around the world, FCT remained quite safe.
