The FCT Administration has arrested 480 suspected criminals from uncompleted buildings and undeveloped plots of land in Maitama and Wuse II areas.

Commander in charge of the task force, Mr Bennett Igweh, said the suspects, majority men, had turned green areas, undeveloped plots of land, and unoccupied houses into their haven for crime.

He added that the task force recovered police uniforms, mobile phones, a loaded pistol, machetes and charms from the suspects.

Igweh said they suspected that some of them might be escapees from Kuje custodial center, adding that they would be profiled to know their identities.
