Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, has sworn that kidnappers operating in Abuja will not be permitted to rest for long. They will bring the conflict to them in their camps, he threatened. The bandits will see fire for fire, he continued.
He said that they, too, would not sleep in Abuja since the bandits had declared that no one would sleep there.
Wike promised that the robbers would flee during his speech at the flag-off of the Paikon-Kore Road development in the Gwagwalada neighborhood of Abuja.
According to the report by Channels Television, he said, “I have assured you before that we are going to take this fight against them head in. Today, you can see that we are not letting them go. I told you all these criminals will run away.
“We will make sure they don’t sleep again. If they say we will not sleep, they too will not sleep. A child that says the mother will not sleep, will he sleep? So, we are taking the war to them head-on. Let them wait for us, they will see fire for fire.”
