The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) said 14 male suspects were being prosecuted in Court for giving false information and inciting public disturbance about purported disappearance of their organs in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja.
This was revealed by the FCT Commissioner of Police, CP Haruna Garba, while speaking to select journalists in Abuja on Tuesday.
According to the Commissioner: “the FCT Police command has recorded over 10 cases of alleged disappearance of male organs across the Territory and the escalating incidents of mob action by irate youths. It takes the intervention of the Police Command to prevent the loss of life and property and restore law and order.
“14 suspects, who claimed that their male organs have disappeared were taken to the hospital where the medical doctor confirmed that their male organs are intact and active. Consequently, they were charged to court for giving false information and inciting public disturbance.”
The FCT Police boss also warned residents to beware of raising the alarm of organ disappearance when they are not sure as this could lead to unwanted mob actions and possible harming of innocent persons.
“I wish to seize this opportunity to appeal the residents of FCT to warn their wards and children to desist from raising false alarm.
“In addition, they are enjoined not to resort to jungle justice or mob action as innocent lives may be lost in the process.
“In the same vein, I wish to advise residents of the FCT to be wary of the kind of vehicles they board. It is advised that they should board painted taxis from designated motor parks. It is risky to board an unpainted taxi otherwise known as ‘kabu-kabu’ as they may fall victims of these robbers known as ‘one chance’.
“I want to reiterate my commitment and willingness to always work with you to defeat crime in the Federal Capital Territory,” CP Haruna told the journalists.
