‘’You said there are about two or three more persons to be arrested; let me put money on their heads. Wherever they are, send your men after them, I will give them N20 million, go and fish them out from wherever they are, use that money on their head I want to see them dead or alive,” Wike said.

The minister promised to support the police with more vehicles and communication gadgets to aid their intelligence gathering.

In another related development, Legit.ng reported earlier that Nyesom Wike, FCT minister, on Thursday, February 1, said he would do all it takes to secure the nation’s seat of power.

Bandits and other criminal elements have, in recent weeks, held sway in some parts of the FCT, killing and kidnapping others.

But Wike, at the flag off of the construction of Paikon-Kore Road in the Gwagwalada area of the FCT, maintained that his administration will not leave any stone unturned in its quest to flush out criminals.
