Operatives of the Federal Capital Territory Police Command said they raided an abductors’ den in Jibi forest bordering Dei-dei Abuja and arrested one suspect.

This was updated in a statement shared on the command’s X account on Monday by SP Josephine Adeh, the spokesperson for the command.

Adeh said they recovered exhibits such as firearms and cows from the camp.

The statement said, “The operatives of the FCT Police Command, in a continued fight against banditry in FCT, stormed a kidnappers’ den in Jibi forest bordering Dei-dei Abuja on March 23, 2024, at about 6am. On sighting police operatives, the bandits fled from their hideouts to escape arrest.

“The crime prevention operation was carried out on the heels of a credible intelligence that one Mallam Danyaboi and Ilu, gang members and colleagues to one Nasiru Mohammed aka. Danger, who was earlier arrested and paraded by the police command on March 11, 2024, in connection with a series of kidnappings in FCT, had planned a reprisal kidnapping attack in Zuba and its environs for the arrest of their members.

“Exhibits such as firearms and cows were recovered from the camp.”
