Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Ogechi Jaiyes­imi

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.
