The Federal Capital Territory Police Command has said some its officers have foiled a robbery.

The command said its operatives attached to the Apo Divisional Headquarters on Wednesday foiled an armed robbery operation and arrested a suspect.

A statement issued by the command’s spokesperson, SP Josephine Adeh revealed that the operation followed a distress call received from Zone E Extension Apo Resettlement.

She said operatives from the Apo Division swiftly mobilized to the scene but the hoodlums, “on sighting the police team, abandoned an ash-coloured BMW vehicle with Reg. No. ABJ 440 KX, containing three (3) plasma televisions and two (2) laptops, which they had stolen from one of the houses, and fled in different directions.

“A red Volkswagen Golf with Reg. No. LUY 899 KV was similarly sighted around the vicinity with its engine running. The vehicle zoomed off upon the arrival of police operatives.

“The gallant operatives gave the fleeing vehicle a hot chase and intercepted it at the Games Village Roundabout. The driver was later identified as Dahiru Muazu ‘M’.

“The suspect and exhibits recovered are in custody while the investigation is in progress to arrest other fleeing suspects”.

She said the suspects will be charged to court upon the conclusion of investigations.
