Isah Akuboh, a suspected member of an armed robbery gang, was detained by the Federal Capital Territory Police Command when he allegedly attempted to steal a car in the Mpape neighborhood of Abuja.
DSP Josephine Adeh, the FCT Police Public Relations Officer, revealed this in a statement on November 20, 2022, a Sunday.
The PPRO reported that “a team of armed bandits attempted to remove an unregistered Lexus Car at Berger Quarry Mpape.”
“A good samaritan who reasonably noticed their behavior alerted the Police who sprang into action, gave the fleeing criminals a hot pursuit, and arrested one Isah Akuboh.
Three rounds of 9 X 19 mm ammunition as well as one locally made imitation English pistol were found by the police.
“The investigation is ongoing and effort has been intensified to apprehend members of the syndicate at large,” she added.
