By: Kingsley Omonobi – Abuja

The FCT Police Command on Wednesday commenced raids on untended bushes and abandoned structures within the city centre and suburbs as part of its intelligence-led gathering measures.

This is as it debunked insinuations that some kidnappers had infiltrated the city and maintained a hideout from where to launch attacks.

According to the Command, “We have only just begun. Members of the public will witness heavy visibility policing and an in-out sweep of the Territory.

It said, “While at that, we urge the good people of the Territory to be well informed, exercise calm, bearing in mind that it is the Police at work, to eschew the promulgation of panic erupting news with misplaced facts such as witnessed in a trending video purporting kidnappers hideout in the territory.

While calling on residents to support the police with useful information, the Command said, “All arrested persons during the raids will be screened and profiled while erring parties will be charged to court.”

Recall that on Tuesday, 2nd August 2022, the Command assured residents that there will be voracious Intelligence gathering and Intelligence-led raids among other security measures.
