Kidnapping: Abuja is Too Dark, Buhari’s Aide Tells Wike

Former presidential aide Bashir Ahmad has urged the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, to act for the safety of Abuja.

According to him, Abuja is too dark and some parts are dangerous to be at night.

Proferring a solution, Ahmad, who’s served under former president Muhammadu Buhari, urged the Minister to ensure adequate street lights in such areas.

He shared on X, “Dear @GovWike, Abuja is too dark, some spots in this city are naturally dangerous to be at night. The absence of adequate lighting on the streets of prominent districts such as Wuse, Maitama, Asokoro, Garki, and the Central Business District, etc is a matter that requires immediate action, Sir.”

Ahmad ‘s words came amid series of kidnappings plaguing the capital city. Police have, however, made arrests just as the force promised to restore sanity in the city.
