FCT Commissioner of Police, Wilson Inalegwu has commended residents of the territory for their cooperation and support in the fight against crime in the seat of government.
CP Inalegwu stressed that without cooperation of the residents, the efforts of his officers and men in the fight against crime and criminality would have been less productive.

This is an indication that our partnership with members of the public is yielding appreciable result and can be improved upon. Let me remind FCT residents that policing is a collective responsibility that involves all and sundry.
“I also want to appreciate your strategic role and the good relationship that has existed between the Command and the Press. Let me also commend the dedication and resilience of my management team, officers and personnel of the Command who have all been alive to their responsibilities. The success we are celebrating today is a result of the viable team spirit that we have built in the Command and have been properly keyed into by the personnel.”
The Police chief said, within the period under review, the Command arrested 11 suspects, recovered 6 stolen cars, 25 live cartridges/live ammunitions, 2 locally made pistols, one generator, 2 pump action, one cutlass, 50 cattle and 3 knives.
