The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command, on Tuesday, uncovered bandits’ hideout at the Dadu hills in Kuje Area Council of the territory, engaging the assailants in a gun duel.



A statement by the command’s spokesperson, DSP Josephine Adeh, said the development followed the receipt of actionable intelligence about the movement of suspected bandits holding some hostages in the area.

She said the command, in a concerted effort with the Destiny hunters, stormed the area upon receiving the complaint.

According to the statement, after sighting the gallant advancement of the team, the criminal elements opened fire, leading to the death of a member of the destiny hunter.

The police public relations officer said the miscreants retreated with various degrees of gunshot injuries owing to the superior firepower of the team.

“The FCT Commissioner of Police, while extending condolences to the family of the deceased, reassured residents of the command’s unflinching commitment to ridding the Territory of crime and criminality."
