The Police Command in the FCT said it would soon embark on rigorous stop-and-search operation to check the rising cases of car theft in the territory.

The command’s spokesman, DSP Anjuguri Manzah, disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja.

“The command is going to embark on vigorous stop-and-search operation along the highways of the FCT, as such, members of the public are hereby advised to always have proof of ownership of their cars in their possession to avoid embarrassment.

“As a result of the seeming rise in cases of theft of motor vehicles within FCT, especially the ones that are easily removed from where they are parked, the command is poised to take necessary action to stem the tide of the menace,” he said.

Manzah advised car owners to install trackers, alarm and other anti-theft devices in their cars to avoid falling victims of the menace.

“Car owners should install trackers, alarm and other anti-theft devices in their cars, lock their cars with either pedal or steering lock.

The police spokesman also advised that cars should be parked at well-lit area, especially at night, adding that vehicles should be locked at all times, even while driving.

“When parked, keys should not be left in the car. All the windows and sunroof should be closed and valuables such as brief cases, hand bags, should not be kept in public view,” he said.

He also advised car owners to learn to endeavour to memorise their vehicle numbers colour, and any other vital details that would aid identification of vehicles.

“Drivers should endeavour to leave their glass wind up and apply central door lock, especially when driving in areas poorly lit.

“As a driver when you are not comfortable with your passenger, drive to the nearest police stop-and-search point and lodge your complaint,” he said.

Manzah urged the residents to cooperate with the police by adhering to the recommended tips to prevent rising cases of car thefts in the territory. (NAN)
