The Federal Capital Territory, FCT Police Command has foiled a robbery attack in Abuja.
According to DSP Josephine Adeh, Police Public Relations Officer, of the Command, it’s operatives on the 6th June, 2022, quickly responded to a distress call from Queens Efab Estate, Kasana, Galadima Area that there was an ongoing armed robbery operation.
Operatives of the Command attached to Galadima Divisional Headquarters swiftly responded and upon arrival at the Estate, the robbers took to their heels.
According to Adeh, The gallant operatives however gave them a chase which led to them abandoning some items they had already stolen including some phones and laptops.
The Police spokesperson expressed disappointment that a section of the media had erroneously reported that bandits attacked an estate in Gwarinpa Estate, Abuja, and abducted residents.
“It is disheartening to discover that some news platforms chose to trend a false narrative without following the ethics and standards of balanced reportage, thereby inundating the public with false, imaginary and spurious account of what actually transpired.
“The Commissioner of Police, CP Babaji Sunday, however assures residents of the Command’s commitment to their safety and of swift response to all distress calls.” Adeh added.
