Police arrest suspected armed robber, recover gun in Abuja

A suspected armed robber was arrested by members of the Federal Capital Territory Police Command on Saturday during a robbery operation at Berger in the Quarry neighbourhood of Mpape, Abuja.

According to information obtained by newsmen, Isah Akuboh, the defendant who was caught, was part of a group that attempted to steal a Lexus before a pedestrian called 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 demeanour 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.”
