FCT Police Launches Massive Attacks On Criminals, Parades 34 Suspects

The efforts to close up security gaps in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) received a boost on Monday when the Police Command paraded 34 suspects for allegedly operating various criminal syndicates in Abuja and its environs.

Parading the suspects at the FCT Police Command headquarters, the Commissioner of Police (CP) Wilson Inalegwu said the “tremendous achievement in combating crime” in the capital city has been successful in the last couple of weeks due to the proactive intelligence gathering and strategic deployment of personnel, coupled with information received from the public.

He said the command leadership met with estate developers who were advised to besides giving police timely information on identified criminals, their hideout, also take time to secure their domicile by erecting perimeter fences around their estates.
