The FCT Administration on Friday arrested 480 suspected criminals from uncompleted buildings and undeveloped plots of land in Maitama and Wuse II areas.

Commander in charge of the task force, Mr Bennett Igweh, said the suspects, majority men, had turned green areas, undeveloped plots of land, and unoccupied houses into their haven for crime.

Igweh noted that the team would stop at nothing at ridding the city of criminal elements threatening the peace of the FCT.

He added that the task force recovered police uniforms, mobile phones, a loaded pistol, machetes and charms from the suspects.

“We arrested about 480 suspected criminals. We are going to take many of them to court.

“We’ll do thorough profiling because we suspect that some of them are escapees from the Kuje Correctional Centre.

“We are starting from the city centre, and we will extend the arrests to other areas.

He added that the exercise will cover 21 satellite villages and towns from Kabusa to Gishiri to Waru and to Wasa and others in the FCT.
