Operatives of the FCT Police Command have arrested eight notorious “one chance” robbery suspects in Abuja.

The Commissioner of Police (CP), Mr Benneth Igweh, who disclosed this while parading the suspects on Wednesday, said they were arrested by men from the Mabushi Division on Tuesday at about 4pm.

He gave the names of the suspects as Ismail Hudu, Sylvester Poto, Abdulsalam Mamuda, Sunday Udoma, Ifeoma Ngoze Obodo, Muhammed Telegbe and Serah Mohammed.
