The Federal Capital Territory Police Command has confirmed the arrest of an armed robber, Isah Akuboh, during an operation at Berger, in the Quarry area of Mpape, Abuja.

LENTORLITENEWS Metro gathered that Akuboh was among a gang that attempted stealing a Lexus car when a good Samaritan alerted the police.

Narrating the incident in a post on Twitter, the FCT Police Public Relations Officer, Josephine Adeh, said a locally-made pistol was recovered from Akuboh, adding that efforts were on to arrest other fleeing members of the gang.

The post read, “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 19mm parabellum ammunition.

“Investigation is ongoing, and effort has been intensified to apprehend members of the syndicate at large.”
