Police Arrest 23 Suspects In Abuja For Armed Robbery and Other Offences  

The police command in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has arrested 23 suspects in connection with rape, armed robbery, car theft, and other offences in the territory.

The FCT Commissioner of Police, Mr Haruna Garba, said this during a media briefing in Abuja.
He said nine of the suspects were arrested for one chance, two for rape, and 12 for armed robbery.

The CP said five vehicles, five firearms, and 12 live rounds of ammunition were recovered from the suspects.

Garba said that, going by the arrests and recoveries for November, it was clear that crime had dropped significantly in the territory in December.

“I wish to bring to the attention of the general public that there are some mischief-makers out there posting items on social media that the FCT is not safe and that one-chance operators have taken over the FCT.

“This is not true. I can say without any fear of contradiction that FCT is the safest city in Nigeria.
Many Nigerians are coming in droves to FCT to reside and do business due to the prevailing peace and security in the city.

“It is unfortunate that someone is leveraging social media to misinform the entire populace that FCT is not safe.

“Those behind the fake news should be mindful of the fact that Nigeria is the only country that we call our own,” he said.

He said the target of the mischief-makers was to create fear and apprehension in the minds of the people and, of course, investors who would want to come to Nigeria to invest.

“Christmas was celebrated peacefully without any serious security breaches. The Millennium Park, Magic Land (Amusement Park), and other recreational facilities, places of worship, and other key/vulnerable points were adequately protected.
