Lavish crimes gang invades FCT

07 November 2016, 12:53

Abuja - Members of the public have been alerted to the prevalence of criminal syndicates that have devised means of gaining easy access into residents with criminal intention.

The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command issued the warning.

“FCT seizes this medium to warn members of the public to guard against opening their gates to strangers that have not been verified by them.

It is alleged members of these syndicates who operate mostly at night go to the extent of living the inner light of their cars on to allay any suspicion from gate-men.

They allegedly use expensive vehicles and dispossess their victims of cash, jewellery and phones, said Anjuguri Manzah, FCT Police Public Relations Officer.

He enjoined residents to be vigilant and guard against welcoming strangers without first verifying their identity.

“Residents should also endeavour to educate their gate-men on the need to always verify before opening the gate to strangers.”
