Police react to ‘fresh plan’ by bandits to invade Abuja

The police has reacted to fresh plan by bandits to wreck havoc in some parts of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.

The FCT commissioner of police, Benneth Igweh, said that the rumours in some quarters that bandits are planning to invade Abuja to abduct residents is false.

Igweh stated this while addressing journalists at the command’s headquarters on Monday, June 3.

Reacting to a publication by some media outlets, Igweh said investigation by the command showed that there was no such attempt to invade the FCT.

He said the command had made necessary deployments across various blackspots in Abuja and in the satellite towns to tame the activities of criminals, especially bandits and kidnappers.

He noted that the command had deployed its men and officers at both exit and entry points into the nation’s capital in case of any criminal elements that might attempt to commit any crime.

Igweh assured that the command was working assiduously to ensure the safety of all residents and avert any intended attack.

He advised residents to continue to be vigilant as they go about their lawful businesses.
