The policed boss said that like other climes across the world, the country had its security challenges.
He said the Police Command in the FCT had a robust anti-crime architecture that the command had continually rejigged to effectively tackle prevailing and emerging crimes.
Mr Adamu enjoined laws abiding citizens and visitors alike to go about their lawful endeavours without fear or apprehension.
