FCT police assure on safety of lives, property
The FCT Police Command has assured members of the public that normalcy has been restored to Wuse market and its environs following two days of rioting over alleged killing of a taxi driver by the taskforce attached to the Directorate of Road Transport Services (VIO).
In a press statement by the command’s spokesperson, DSP Anjuguri Manzah, he said “while the command reiterates its commitment to protect lives and property in the territory, members of the public are advised to always follow the right channel in expressing their grievances instead of resorting to self-help and causing damage to property.”
Manzah dismissed claims by the aggrieved drivers that their member was killed, “contrary to speculations making the rounds, members of the public should note that no life was lost nor was anybody injured from the fracas and the situation has been brought under control.
“It is also pertinent to state that some hoodlums who were trying to take advantage of the false rumour to cause problem in FCT have been arrested and investigation is in progress.”
The spokesperson added that “the command enjoins residents to go about their lawful businesses as adequate security measures have been deployed to protect lives and property in the territory.”
