The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) on Saturday, January 20, paraded 16 suspects terrorizing Bwari Area Council in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), and other parts of the country.
Parading the suspects in Abuja, the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the arrest of the suspects came in response to the pressing need for enhanced security measures in the nation’s capital.
Recall that since late last year, several cases of kidnapping and killing have been recorded in the FCT, especially in the Bwari community.
Adejobi said the launch of the Special Intervention Squad (SIS) by the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Kayode Egbetokun at the Force Headquarters comprising highly trained personnel equipped with advanced technology and resources of the force also made it possible for the suspects to arrest the suspect in their various hideouts.
Adejobi maintained that the force would not relent in the fight against crimes and criminality in the country.
The Force PRO said ammunition of all kinds and valuables were recovered during the operations.
The suspected notorious Abuja kidnapper, one Chinaza Phillip, who was handed over to the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Police command on Friday following his arrest by police operatives of the Kaduna State Police Command on Thursday was also paraded on a stretcher.
