The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command has dragged 201 persons to court over their involvement in the looting and destruction of property in the FCT.
The Command has also recovered some items that were looted at the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Orientation Camp-Kubwa, Kuje, Gwagwalada, Jabi and Idu.
All the suspects, according to a statement by the FCT Command Spokesperson, ASP Yusuf Mariam, were arraigned before 6 mobile courts on Wednesday.
It would be recalled that following the wanton looting and vandalization of warehouses within the FCT, two days ago, the crime-fighting effort of the FCT Police Command led to the arrest of some suspected vandals cum looters.
“In continuation of its relentless effort to restore normalcy, within the last 48hours, the Command has arrested and arraigned a total of two hundred and one (201) suspected looters including women.
“The above development is proof of the Command’s unwavering resolve to further maintain peace and stability within the Federal Capital Territory.
“The Command wishes to reaffirm that it will not relent until it has brought to book all criminal elements within the FCT,” the statement said.
The statement quoted the Commissioner in charge of the FCT, (CP) Bala Ciroma as calling on well-meaning residents of the capital city to desist from engaging in any action capable of causing a breakdown of law and order.
He also appealed to parents, guardians, community and religious leaders to prevail upon their wards to keep the peace.
