Men of the FCT Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) at the early hours of Sunday morning nabbed two suspected robbers along Nyanya/Mararaba expressway.
The suspected robbers who gave their names as Sunday Solomon and Emeka Eze, were arrested by a detachment of policemen who were acting on a tip off. According to a police source, a locally made pistol and three cartridges were recovered from the suspects, who confessed that they came to Abuja to rob.
“They have confessed to have robbed several cars in Abuja and we are still conducting more investigations into the matter,’’ the source added.
When contacted, FCT SARS Commandant, Chief Superintendent Ben Igweh, confirmed the incident and added that the suspected robbers were arrested by a patrol team led by one Inspector Simon Obagwu.
He said that the robbers specialise in vehicle snatching, adding that the police will not rest on their oars in ensuring that the FCT is rid of criminal elements.
