Police Nab Dismissed Soldier, Others For Kidnapping In FCT

The Police Command in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, has arrested a dismissed soldier and one other over an alleged armed robbery in the Gwarimpa area of Abuja.

The FCT Commissioner of Police, Benneth Igweh, made this known at a media briefing on Wednesday in Abuja.

He said the suspects were arrested on March 17 following a distress call to the Mabushi Division by Blessing Mafulul Damia and Haliru Zakari.

Igweh said that the two reported to the police that while on their way home, some men in an unregistered Toyota Hilux trailed them from H-Medix, Gwarimpa, to Gishiri village.

The Commissioner of Police said the complainants reported that the suspects later robbed them of their valuables and attempted to kidnap them.

“Upon receipt of the information, police operatives of the division swung into action, trailed the vehicle and arrested two suspects, including the dismissed soldier.

“A black-coloured Toyota Hilux with Reg No. NBB 03 AH, a jack knife and some military accoutrements were recovered from the suspects,” he said.
