The Federal Capital Territory Police Command said that it raided a kidnapper's camp in an Abuja border community, apprehending three suspects and eliminating one.

SP Josephine Adeh, the FCT Police Public Relations Officer, disclosed this in a statement issued on Saturday in Abuja.

She claimed the raid was part of the command's ongoing efforts to combat crime in the FCT.
According to her, police officers from Utako Divisional Headquarters, led by CSP Victor Godfrey, attacked an identified kidnapper's hideout in Chikara, a Kogi-FCT border community.

Ms Adeh stated that three suspects were arrested, with one killed, in a series of clearance operations between June 8 and 13.

“The sudden appearance of the police operatives in the kidnapper’s camp resulted in a gun duel.

“The suspects have confessed to being involved in a series of kidnapping incidents and other heinous crimes in the FCT and its environs,” she said.

According to Ms. Adeh, the items recovered from the suspects were an English pump-action gun, a locally made pistol, two live cartridges, cutlasses, knives, and things suspected to be charms.
