Police Rescued Three Suspected Scammers From An Angry Mob In Abuja

Operatives of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Command of the Nigerian Police have rescued three alleged internet fraudsters from an angry mob in the Lokogoma area of Abuja.

According to the reports, the suspects identified as Francis Emeka Noah, Wua Ikyer, and Bokos Terkula, were caught while allegedly attempting to lure and defraud a female Point-of-Sale (POS) operator around Peace Court Estate, along Lokogoma Road on Tuesday, August 9.

Josephine Adeh, the spokesperson of the command confirmed the incident in a statement on Thursday, August 11.

Adeh said the Commissioner of Police in charge of the FCT, CP Babaji Sunday, had warned the public against jungle justice, warning that act of jungle justice is criminal and punishable by law.

The commissioner said the act of resorting to jungle justice in quest for a solution to a problem was barbaric.

He said a preliminary investigation carried out revealed that the mob descended on the suspects after they attempted to defraud a female Point-of-Sale operator.

The CP said the suspects, rescued following the prompt intervention of the police, are currently in police custody.

The CP condemned the act and enjoined residents to come forward with complaints to give room for legitimate and swift dispensation of justice.
