480 alleged offenders detained in Abuja from abandoned buildings

On Friday, the FCT Administration detained 480 suspected offenders from abandoned buildings and undeveloped property in the Maitama and Wuse II neighborhoods. The task force commander, Mr. Bennett Igweh, stated that the suspects, who were mostly men, had made green spaces, undeveloped parcels of land, and vacant homes their shelter for the crime. Igweh stated that the squad would do everything it took to purge the city of any criminal elements endangering the FCT’s calm. 

He stated that the suspects were found to be in possession of police uniforms, cellphones, a loaded gun, machetes, and charms by the task force. He added that the police would do in-depth profiling since they think some of them are Kuje Correctional Center escapees and they will extend the arrests to other areas after they finish in the city center. 

He continued by saying that the exercise would include 21 satellite villages and towns in the FCT, including Kabusa, Gishiri, Waru, and Wasa.
