And here I was thinking the police were doing nothing but waste my time when they conduct their ‘Stop and Search’ routine.
One Abubakar Umar was arrested on Sunday by the officers of the Police Command in the Jabi Daki Biu area of Abuja.
ASP Anjuguri Manzah, the Command’s spokesperson stated that, the culprit was arrested during a stop and search exercise by the operatives of the Command at Dikwa, a common boundary of the FCT and Niger.
It is reported that, the suspect who had tried to escape from the check-point, was arrested with a blue coloured Mazda, with registration number, BRV 822 BS.
According to Manzah, the said vehicle had been snatched from the owner at gunpoint at Gosa Lugbe.
He stated that the suspect will be charged to court once investigation is concluded, while they continue the hunt for his cohorts who are now at large.
