The FCT Police Command has warned members of the public to guard against opening their gates to strangers that have not been verified by them.
In a statement issued in Abuja on Friday, the Command’s Spokesman, ASP Anjuguri Manza, said the Police Command had observed through available intelligence that some criminal syndicates have devised a novel means of gaining easy access into peoples’ homes with criminal intent.
According to the Police, members of these syndicates who operate mostly at night go to the extent of living the inner light of their cars on to allay any suspicion from security guards. “They use expensive jeep and dispossess their victims of cash, jewelleries and phones,” he said.
The Police Command enjoined residents to be vigilant and guard against welcoming strangers without first verifying the identity of such persons. "Residents should also endeavour to educate their gate-men on the need to always verify before opening the gate to strangers.
“The Police can be contacted in case of any suspicious movement through: 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653 OR 08028940883,” the police said.
