The FCT Police Command has moved against scavengers perpetrating criminal activities within the seat of power.
It was gathered that the command would soon swoop on them in a major move to rid the city of bad elements.
The new FCT police boss, CP Sadiq Abubakar is said to have given a marching order to divisional police bosses to work with FCT environmental agencies to send the scavengers packing from Abuja.
Spokesperson of the command, DSP Josephine Adeh who confirmed the move by the CP noted: “The Commissioner of Police in charge of the Federal Capital Territory has given strict directives to all supervisory Police Officers to synergize with the Abuja Environmental Protection Board and other relevant agencies in order to rid the capital city of scavengers. He has directed that they should be charged to court where arrested and their loots destroyed.”
