Robbery incident in viral video didn’t occur in Abuja – FCT Police clarifies

The Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Police Command has made a clarification on the video clip circulating online depicting a robbery incident, which purportedly occurred in Abuja, involving a “Right Hand Drive” vehicle.

In a statement issued on Wednesday night by the command’s spokesperson, Josephine Adeh, the police said contrary to the narrative, “the incident did not take place within the Federal Capital Territory”.

She stated that upon analysis of the viral video, it was evidently clear that the robbery incident did not even occur in Nigeria.

According to her, the conclusion was drawn from the vehicle registration number plate design and the steering position of the vehicle, which is Right Hand Drive, RHD.

“It is important to note that Nigeria does not allow RHD vehicles on its roads, neither are the roads fashioned to accommodate such cars as seen in the video.

“The Commissioner of Police FCT, CP Benneth Igweh, psc, mni, urges those circulating the video to desist from such actions as it may cause apprehension and unwarranted panic among the populace”, the statement added.
