Nigerians using FCT police emergency numbers to obtain loans — CP


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

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

The CP, however, warned those behind the acts to desist, saying that the police would ensure they are brought to book.

Garba stated this in a statement by the command spokesperson, SP Josephine Adeh, on Friday.

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.
