FCT Police “Restore Normalcy” to Byazhin Community.


The federal capital territory (FCT) police command says it has restored normalcy in Byazhin community following a clash that occurred on Tuesday, May 14th, 2024.

The incident occurred behind an LEA primary school, where a group of scavengers popularly known as “Baban-bola” reportedly waylaid some passersby and forcibly collected their valuables.

A statement issued by the FCT police public relations officer, SP Josephine Adeh, on Wednesday said a “courageous lady resisted, leading to a violent attack by the hoodlums, resulting in severe machete injuries.

The statement read “The FCT Police Command swiftly responded to the situation, making arrests of several suspects who are currently being interrogated to ascertain their complicity or otherwise.

“While reassuring residents that the situation is under control and normalcy has been restored, the Commissioner of Police, FCT, CP Benneth C. Igwe, psc, mni, encourages all residents to continue their lawful activities without fear, as adequate measures have been emplaced to prevent the recurrence of such incidents.”

The FCT commissioner of Police had earlier described the incident as a “disturbance” and tried to contradict reports of casualties saying “They started their disturbance, but we have calmed everywhere down. The person who was macheted is in the hospital, only one person. No person has died.”
