Minister warns perpetrators of Gwagwalada violence
- As Speaker’s security detail dies
The FCT Minister has warned that all those involved in the Gwagwalada political crisis that occurred during a political rally on Saturday morning would be arrested and be made to face the full wrath of the law.
The violence which led to the killing of one Haruna Adamu, said to be security man attached to the Speaker, Gwagwalada Area Council was ordinarily an intra-party squabble in the All Progressives Party (APC), but the APGA connection was the main twist.
The FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Musa Bello who gave this warning after receiving full brief from the security agencies on the Gwagwalada political crisis, condemned the actions of the political thugs.
The Minister further warned that further security breach in whatever manner is not acceptable in the Federal Capital Territory; stressing that politics is not a do or die affair.
Malam Bello emphasised that political violence has no place in our history and has already directed that all perpetrators be arrested and brought to book.
The Minister restated that the political gladiators should not test the will of the government because his Administration would not condone this barbaric behaviour from anybody, however highly placed in the society.
He thus assured the residents of the Federal Capital Territory that the situation is now calm, adding that the security agencies are on top of the situation and therefore advised residents to go about their lawful businesses.
It may be noted that there was a security breach in Dobi village, Gwagwalada Area Council of the FCT where supporters of the current Chairman of the Gwagwalada Area Council, Abubakar Jubril Giri and that of his political god father, all belonging to the same political platform of All Progressives Congress (APC) had a violent clash leading to the death of one Haruna Adamu.
