"In the last couple of weeks, the renewed crime fighting strategy of the command has led to the arrest of notorious criminals and busting of criminal gangs.

"I want to reiterate that FCT is a no-go area for criminals as we will continue to improve on our strategy to beat criminals at their game," he said.
