The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command has crushed a notorious armed robbery gang that specialises in invading their victims’ homes and robbing them of cash and other valuables at gunpoint.

Having successfully foiled the robbers, the police operatives while combing the scene and the nearby bushes recovered the death bodies of two of the hoodlums, two locally made pistols, nine flat screen television sets, two laptops, two cutlasses, one knife, one touch light, one phone, wrist watches, jewelleries, shoes, etc.

A statement issued on Monday in Abuja by FCT Police Command, signed by the Public Relations Officer, DSP Anjuguri Manzah said that on 10th March at about 0215hrs, following a distress call that some armed robbers were robbing some residents of Sauka Federal Housing, Lugbe Extension of cash and other valuables, the police operatives from Lugbe Division immediately mobilized to the scene, but were engaged in a fierce gun confrontation by the armed robbers who opened fire on sighting the team.

The hoodlums were however repelled by the gallant Policemen whose courage and superior gun power resulted in the death of two of the suspects while others escaped the scene with bullet wounds, the statement said.

It noted that some victims have shown up at Lugbe Police Division to identify their property from the recovered items.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police FCT, CP Sadiq Abubakar Bello, who commended the gallantry displayed by the police operatives during their confrontation with notorious armed robbery gang, assured FCT residents that the Command will remain resolute in its fight against crime in the federal capital territory. He also enjoined hospitals workers and members of the public to alert the nearest police station once anybody is sighted with bullet wounds.
