The police boss explained that in the period under review, a total of 122 armed robbery suspects were arrested, 105 vehicles recovered, while over N90 million cash was recovered from armed robbers.

He presented a cash sum of N2 million to the commander of the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS), Assistant Commissioner of Police, Rabiu Dayi, as reward from the FCT Minister, Aliyu Modibbo Umar, in recognition of their outstanding performance in the course of their policing duties.
The Police Commissioner noted: “ACP Dayi and his team have in the past two months arrested more than 250 armed robbery suspects and have recovered more than 100 stolen vehicles. They have remained steadfast in keeping Abuja secure.”

Mr John also decorated newly promoted Command Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Ahmed Musa, and 86 others with the rank of Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP).
“I would like to observe that the success being showcased today was made possible with the cooperation of well meaning members of the public, who provided us with useful information, therefore I wish to use this forum to appreciate all such people and to still appeal to them to continue to assist and support the police in whatever ways they can,” he said.
