The CP asserted that the tale is obviously a fabrication of the authors’ minds because no such incidence occurred in Abuja.

The CP enjoins non-state actors who have been engaging the Police emergency lines in their mischievous posts, aimed at misleading members of the public and those submitting same to obtain loans to desist from such and only use the emergency lines for its intended purpose.

According to FCT Police Public Relations Officer(PPRO), SP Josephine Adeh, the CP promised that deliberate steps will be taken to arrest and prosecute the purveyors of these illegal acts.

The Commissioner of Police urges residents of the FCT to cooperate with the police for improved service delivery. He equally tasks FCT residents to take advantage of the Police Control Room numbers in reporting suspicious activities: 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653, and 08028940883.
