FCT Police Conduct Raid Operations, Arrest 85 Suspects

The Federal Capital Territory Police Command has disclosed its recent operation where its operatives conducted raids on black spots and criminal hideouts in Abuja, resulting in the arrest of 85 suspects.

In a statement issued on Sunday, SP Josephine Adeh, the spokesperson for the FCT Police Command, outlined the operation’s details. She stated, “The operatives of the FCT Police Command, in a streak of coordinated raid exercises between March 31 and April 4, 2024, stormed some identified black spots and criminal hideouts in Durumi and Dei-Dei axis of Abuja, serving as places of hibernation for hoodlums, and arrested eighty-five (85) suspects for various offences, ranging from erecting illegal structures and shanties to peddling hard drugs and manufacturing counterfeit currencies.

“A search warrant was executed in some of the structures and several exhibits ranging from paper and coin counterfeit currencies both in local and foreign, light weapons, eight motorcycles, seven generators, gadgets, and several ATM cards suspected to have been stolen from their victims were recovered.

“All the arrested suspects will be screened, while those found culpable will be profiled and arraigned in court, as the illegal wooden structures erected by the hoodlums were dismantled and set ablaze to deter criminals from turning these places into a breeding ground of menaces.”
