Police kill bandit, arrest three in Abuja

Police officers from the Federal Capital Territory have killed a bandit and arrested three during a clearance operation.

The police during the operation stormed an identified hideout of kidnappers in Chikara, a community that shares a border with Kogi State.

This, however, led to a gun duel with the suspects.

The police in a statement on Saturday by the FCT command spokesperson, Josephine Adeh identified the arrested suspects as Mahammadu Isa, Likita Idris, and Isiyaku Muhammedu.

The statement read, “In the continuous effort against criminality in FCT, operatives from Utako Divisional headquarters stormed an identified kidnappers hideouts in Chikara, Kogi state bordering FCT, and Zuba, Abuja, in a streak of clearance operation between June 8 and 13, 2024, and arrested three suspects: Mahammadu Isa, 27 ‘m’ of Dantata Abuja, Likita Idris, 27 ‘m’ of Kogi state, and Isiyaku Muhammedu, 22 ‘m’ of Kogi State.
