FCT police recover stolen cars
The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) police patrol team have recovered two cars, one of which was suspected to have been stolen from where the owner packed it at Pyakasa on Saturday.
A police source told our reporter that acting on information that two cars were removed from parking lots at two different places in Lugbe axis on Saturday, Safer Highways operatives on patrol intercepted one of the cars that was stolen at Pyakasa road at Rivers Park Lugbe, after it was abandoned by the robbers on spotting the police personnel on duty.
The source said the recovered cars were a black coloured Toyota Corolla 2008 Model with registration No. KWL 345 Rl, and a silver coloured Toyota Corolla 2003 Model with registration No APP 172 DR.
City News gathered that Pyakasa road, at Rivers Park Lugbe, is allegedly a popular place where armed robbers and criminals operate without limitations.
Mrs. Beatrice Damilola who owns a block industry in the area told our reporter that her handbag had been snatched twice in the area and that her son was nearly shot when he wanted to resist them the last time she was robbed there.
She said that the robbers freely vandalised her car one afternoon and when she raised alarm, nobody paid attention because, according to her, it happens all the time.
When the FCT police spokesperson, Assistant Superintendent Anjuguri Manzah was contacted, he confirmed the incident and said the other car, which was stolen before ACO Estate, was recovered at Gosa by Safer Highways Team on patrol.
He stated that discreet investigations have since commenced to track down the suspects behind the act.
