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.

“Given the above, the victims were taken to the hospital for medical examination and subsequently reunited with their families," the statement added.

The PPRO revealed that the operation recorded the rescue of four victims: “Mustahudeen Sani, Felix Vaa, and Adamu Isa, all males who were reportedly kidnapped between the 23rd and 25th of May 2022 at Kiyi in Kwali Area Council; and Abdulsalam Uzugiz, who was kidnapped at Angwan Gade extension of Kuje Area Council of the Territory."

“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."

“Complimenting the above, members of the public are therefore urged to remain vigilant and strengthen their partnership with the police as regards the rendition of prompt and actionable intelligence by reporting any suspicious or abnormal occurrence through the following emergency lines: 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653, and 08028940883, while the Public Complaint Bureau (PCB) desk can be reached on: 0902 222 2352,” he said.
