The FCT Police Command has commenced investigations into the reported case of a security breach occasioned by armed robbery, shooting, and abduction of some persons in the Kubwa Relocation Estate, off Arab Road area of the FCT on Tuesday, December 6, 2022.

“Preliminary investigations, however, revealed that at about 7:30 pm on Tuesday, 6th December 2022, some armed criminals came into the Kubwa Relocation Estate, and shot two victims, one Oshodi and another Abdulwahab (both other names unknown).
