Men of the Federal Capital Territory Police Command have arrested a suspected armed robber during a robbery operation at Berger in the Quarry area of Mpape, Abuja on Saturday.
Our correspondent gathered that the arrested suspect, Isah Akuboh, was among a gang that attempted to steal a Lexus car before a pedestrian alerted the police.
Narrating the incident on her Twitter handle, the FCT police spokesperson, Josephine Adeh, said, “A gang of armed robbers tried to remove an unregistered Lexus car at Berger, Quarry, Mpape, but a good samaritan who reasonably suspected their demeanor alerted the police who swung into action.
“Our operatives gave a hot chase to the fleeing miscreants, arrested one Isah Akuboh and recovered one locally crafted imitation of an English pistol and three rounds of 9 X 19 mm parabellum ammunition.
“Investigation is ongoing, and effort has been intensified to apprehend members of the syndicate at large.”
