Police Warn Residents Against Circulating Voice Recording Of Alleged Robbery In FCT

The Federal Capital Territory Commissioner of Police, CP Haruna G. Garba, on Thursday, warned residents against circulating the voice recording alleging a robbery gang in the nation’s capital.

The commissioner gave the warning in a statement issued by the Command’s spokesperson, SP Josephine Adeh.

Recall that an audio WhatsApp message by one West Robinson, which is currently in circulation, alleged that some criminal elements are using vehicles with foreign plate numbers to commit crimes in the city.

But the Command PPRO, in the statement, urged residents to stop circulating the audio, stressing that it is creating panic and apprehension in the populace.

According to SP Adeh, the command had already begun clamping down on such vehicles and their users.

The statement reads, “It may also interest the members of the public that there is an ongoing clampdown on the described vehicles (vehicles with foreign number plates) in the narrative, as the CP emphasises the Command’s commitment to improving the overall security towards the protection of lives and properties of residents without fear or favour.

“The CP equally encourages the good people of the Territory to be vigilant and take advantage of the Police emergency lines in reporting suspicious activities: 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653, and 08028940883.
