FCT Police Command Strikes Big, Arrests Suspects, Dislodges Bandits' Camps in Kaduna State

In a significant breakthrough in the fight against criminality in Abuja, the FCT Police Command, in collaboration with the special forces of the Guards Brigade and DSS hunters, launched a coordinated operation on June 7, 2024, targeting identified kidnappers' camps at Gidan Dogo and Kweti Forest in Kaduna State, bordering FCT.

Acting on credible intelligence, the security operatives stormed the camps at about 10:00 am, leading to a shootout with the bandits. The suspects were forced to flee, and the operation resulted in the arrest of four suspects, including Yahaya Abubakar, 25, Mohammed Mohamed, 32, an ex-convict, Umar Aliyu, 20, and Nura Abdullahi, 32, also an ex-convict.

The suspects, who confessed to being members of a notorious bandit syndicate known as "Mai One Million," were responsible for a series of kidnappings and other heinous crimes in FCT and its environs. The operation led to the rescue of victims, who have since been reunited with their families and loved ones.

The illegally erected structures by the kidnappers in all the patrolled camps were demolished, and the Commissioner of Police, FCT, CP Benneth C. Igweh, commended the effort of the security operatives in the fight against criminality in the Nation's Capital.

 He reiterated the command's unflinching commitment to ensuring the security and safety of the residents of FCT.

The CP urged residents to be vigilant and take advantage of the police emergency lines to report suspicious activities through: 08032003913, 08028940883, 08061581938, and 07057337653 PCB: 09022222352, CRU: 08107314192.

This operation demonstrates the FCT Police Command's resolve to tackle criminality and ensure the safety of residents in the Nation's Capital.
