Further investigation led to the successfully rescue of two other victims who identified the suspects.

“While urging residents to remain calm and law-abiding, the Command enjoins FCT residents to report any suspicious persons or activities around their vicinity at the nearest Police Division or report the same through any of the FCT Police Command Control numbers: 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653, and 08028940883.”
