The Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Police Command has intensified security measures in response to a suspected planned invasion by bandits. Commissioner of Police Benneth Igweh has deployed officers and resources across Abuja, following a WhatsApp message alerting residents of a potential threat.
The message claimed that a group of bandits, led by Ardo, a sub-commander of notorious leader Boderi Yellow Mai One Million, was heading towards Gauraka/Kubwa Hills in FCT. The alert stated that the bandits, who escaped from Kweri forest in Kagarko, Kaduna State, had 10 hostages and were reportedly frustrated by the refusal of victims’ families to pay ransom.
