CP Dismisses Rumour Of “Kidnappers In Police Uniforms” In FCT

…..Tasks residents on cooperation to tackle crimes

The FCT Commissioner of Police, CP Haruna Garba debunked the information that kidnappers who adorned the Police uniform to perpetrate their illicit acts have kidnapped seventeen persons from the Apo area in Abuja.

According to a press release signed by the FCT Police Public Relations Officer, SP Josephine Adeh, said that it is a figment of the author’s imagination as no incident of such happened within the FCT.

“In the same vein, the CP enjoins non-state actors who have been engaging the Police emergency lines in their mischievous posts, aimed at misleading members of the public and those submitting same to obtain loans to desist from such and only use the emergency lines for its intended purpose as deliberate steps will be taken to arrest and prosecute the purveyors of these illegal acts.

“The Commissioner of Police urges residents of the FCT to cooperate with the police for improved service delivery. He equally tasks FCT residents to take advantage of the Police Control Room numbers in reporting suspicious activities: 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653, and 08028940883, the statement said.
