07 May 2015, 21:29

Abuja - The Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), of the Police has recovered a large sum of money in a bag hidden in an uncompleted building in Abuja.

Spokesman for the command, ASP Anjuguri Manzah, announced this in a statement issued in Abuja on Thursday.

The statement said the money was recovered in a building located on Zuba-Giri axis of the territory.

The statement did not disclose the amount recovered.

It asked anyone who might have connection with the money to come to the Public Relations Officer of the command with proof of ownership for collection.

"Such persons should come with proof of ownership, including stating the exact sum of money, the denomination, the colour of the bag and the circumstances that led to the loss", it said.

The statement said the recovery was evident that the command was alive to its responsibility and that its proactive crime fighting measure was yielding desired result.

Manzah, in another statement, warned the public against obstructing police personnel from carrying out their duties.

The statement reminded the public that obstructing police personnel from carrying out their lawful duty constituted a criminal offence contrary to Section 148 of the Penal Code.

It described as unacceptable attempt by some persons to stop policemen from carrying out their lawful duty at "Pan Taker’’ in Mpape on Wednesday.

"To forestall future occurrence, the Commissioner of Police has ordered a full scale investigation into the incident and to bring the perpetrators to book’’, it said.
