NSCDC Abuja Command Reports 243 Criminal Arrests

Between January and June, the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja Command, apprehended 243 alleged criminals.

Dr Olusola Odumosu, the FCT NSCDC Commandant, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday.

According to Odumosu, 123 of the 243 arrests involved cases that would be heard in court.

He stated that 159 people were arrested for their involvement in illicit mining activities, and that the mines and steel department has so far documented 39 incidents.

According to him, 34 people were arrested for vandalizing public infrastructure in the territory and assigned case files.

“The majority of the vandalism suspects were apprehended in Gwagwalada, Lugbe, Wuye, and the Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) districts of the FCT.

“The Agro-Rangers squad, on the other hand, made two arrests, and both have cases pending in court.

“One of the arrests stemmed from a communal fight between farmers and herders in Dafara Community, Kuje Area Council.

“Men of the department went to the community and successfully mediated between the parties concerned,” according to the commander.

Odumosu noted that the Command’s Intelligence and Investigation Department apprehended 48 people with crimes ranging from cyber fraud to domestic assault, child abuse, and other civil matters.

He did, however, state that 11 criminal cases from the intelligence and investigation section had been charged in court for prosecution.

“For some of the arrests made, investigation is still ongoing after which they will be charged to court,” he informed us.
