Nigerians using FCT police emergency numbers to obtain loans – Police

Haruna Garba, the Commissioner of Police in the Federal Capital Territory has lamented that some undisclosed persons drop the command’s emergency numbers with loan shark companies to obtain loans.

He added that non-state actors had also been engaging the emergency lines.

The CP, however, issued a warning to those responsible, stating that the police will make sure they were held accountable.

It partly read, “In the same vein, the CP enjoins non-state actors who have been engaging the Police emergency lines in their mischievous posts, aimed at misleading members of the public and those submitting same to obtain loans to desist from such and only use the emergency lines for its intended purpose as deliberate steps will be taken to arrest and prosecute the purveyors of these illegal acts.”

Garba also denied a viral report that kidnappers wore police uniforms to abduct 17 residents in the Apo area of Abuja.

“The Commissioner of Police FCT hereby wish to inform members of the public that contrary to the falsehood making the rounds on media platforms alleging that kidnappers who adorned the Police uniform to perpetrate their illicit acts have kidnapped 17 persons from the Apo area in Abuja is a figment of the author’s imagination as no incident of such happened within the FCT,” the statement added.
