Just In: Hoodlums Attack Police Division, Kidnap DCO In Abuja
A group of unknown gunmen have abducted the Divisional Crime Officer of the Dawaki Police Division on Thursday during an attack on the station located in the suburb bordering Gwarimpa in Abuja.
Naija News learnt that the DCO whose identity is yet to be ascertained was subsequently released by the hoodlums who invaded the division.
Trouble started when, after security operatives attempted to arrest a motorcyclist who rode his bike to the Kubwa expressway in violation of the ban on commercial motorcycles on the highway.
Along the line, the Whistler noted that one of the security operatives injured the motorcyclist when he pulled him down from his bike in the process of arresting him.
This action upset the other bikers and some hoodlums who invaded the police division in retaliation on Thursday morning.
An officer was said to have been injured on the leg while one of the hoodlums was reportedly stabbed.
When contacted, DSP Josephine Edeh, spokespersons of the FCT police command confirmed the attack but said she was not aware of the DCO’s abduction.
Edeh noted the situation had been brought under control and calm restored to the area.
