Sadiq Bello, Abuja: Gentlemen of the press, I want to welcome you to my maiden press briefing as the new Commissioner of Police FCT, it is just yesterday Wednesday 13th September, 2017 at about 1630hrs that I took over from my predecessor.
I believe that, policing is a collective responsibility, and for us to get it right in FCT, all and sundry must come and partner with the Police through the provision of timely information or advice on how to effectively fight crime.
My priority as the Commissioner of Police FCT is to see to the reduction of crime to barest minimum, this I intend to do in partnership with FCT residents, as such I call for their support and cooperation.
I am also using this forum to announce a modest success achieved in our Operation yesterday at Zuba area.
Following a tip off Police operatives attached to Zuba Division ambushed and arrested two suspected armed robbers at Zuba fly-over at bout 1730hrs.
They were on their way to Minna Niger state for a major robbery operation. The duo of Suleiman Hasimu ‘m’ from Kogi state and Nura Muhammad ‘m’ from Katsina State were arrested in possession of one berretta Pistol, one locally made revolver pistol and six rounds of 9mm live ammunitions.
The suspects and exhibits have been transferred to the Command Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) for discreet investigation and prosecution.
Once more, I call on members of the Public to partner with the Police in the fight against crime and criminality. Our control room can be reached when in distress through the following numbers: 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653 and 08028940883
