The suspects

Forty-nine suspects have been apprehended as The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) on Thursday raided criminal hideouts in Gwarinpa Estate.

The Ministerial Taskforce on City Sanitation led by the Chairman, Ikharo Attah led the operation.

He said the suspected criminals stopped passersby and dispossessed them of their belongings after the government team finished an operation.

Attah decried how they took advantage of the cleanup exercise to perpetrate looting.

“This shows why we are demolishing Illegal structures. There are shanties and fences almost everywhere in Gwarinpa Estate. These are criminal hideouts which we will not allow to stay.”


Attah said with the increasing rate of shanties in Abuja, the FCT Administration would not allow illegality to continue.

Those apprehended were taken to Efab Police Station, Galadimawa, for more interrogation and prosecution.
