Nyesom Wike, minister of the federal capital territory (FCT), says there is adequate security around the campus of the Nigerian Law School at the Bwari area council in Abuja.

The minister spoke on Thursday when he received the management of the law school led by Isa Chiroma in his office.

Bandits have recently raided communities in Bwari and abducted residents.

In December 2023, six sisters and their father were kidnapped from their home in the Bwari area council.

Wike explained that the FCT administration has ensured the presence of heavy security in Bwari and environs.

He said the security deployment was based on intelligence reports from security agencies to ensure the safety of residents, including private and public institutions located in the area.

“We didn’t want to take any chances at all, knowing fully well the intelligence we were getting,” Wike said.

“So, that is why there is so much security within Bwari area council.

“This is because if anything happens, it will be a setback to the entire country and the FCT.”

Reiterating the administration’s support for the Nigerian Law School, Wike promised to take into account the management’s request for the construction of staff quarters and the procurement of vehicles.

“Luckily, the legal profession is my own constituency and so, it will be out of place if they have problems and I won’t be able to support. You should take it as granted that the FCT will support you,” Wike said.

He directed the general counsel of the FCT administration to liaise with the school management to see how the request for the staff quarters would be captured in the FCTA’s 2024 statutory budget.

On the request for vehicles, the minister said that he would look at available vehicles and make some available for the school.
