JUST IN: Police Breaks Silence Over Viral Video Of Kidnappers Den In Abuja



Kidnappers Den In Abuja

JUST IN: Police Breaks Silence Over Viral Video Of Kidnappers Den In Abuja—The Nigeria Police Force has debunked reports claiming that a kidnappers’ den was discovered in, Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

The Force Spokesperson, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi disclosed this through his Twitter page on Sunday after videos indicating such information went viral

Several videos shared on the internet showed a burning bush area along the Goodluck Jonathan expressway, allegedly indicating the presence of suspected kidnappers/criminals hibernating in such areas to attack their victims.

The videos claimed that these criminals attack innocent commuters whose vehicles may have broken down along that route, robbing them of their belongings, and escaping into the bush.

Those who captured the video also claimed that the flame from the burning bush was a result of the police destruction of a kidnapper’s hideout discovered in the axis.

Another video also showed two gruesomely injured criminals, suspected to have died from the raid operation, but Adejobi debunked the content of the videos.


He tweeted: Fake News: No kidnappers den was discovered near the NPF Headquarters, Garki Abuja. Not at all. The news or video being shared was mere misinformation and a mischievous act of the enemies of the state to continually create fears in the residents of FCT and Nigerians in general.

“However let me reiterate that the police command in the FCT, on the directive of the IGP, has embarked on an aggressive raid of black spots and destruction of some shanties that might be hideouts for criminals in Abuja.

“So no cause for alarm as we have taken necessary steps to decimate activities of hoodlums and criminal elements in the FCT and across the length and breadth of Nigeria. Thanks.”
