The command’s Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Mariam Yusuf, in a statement issued on Sunday in Abuja, said that police personnel from the command engaged the suspected armed robbers in gun duel while on routine patrol.
According to her, one berratta pistol, three rounds of live ammunition, one silver Mazda space wagon and plate numbers were recovered from the suspect.
Yusuf said that operatives from the command had also arrested a 20-year-old man for alleged culpable homicide, on Kasuwa-Dere area of Gwagwalada Area Council of FCT.
She said that the suspect was arrested by detectives from Gwagwalada Police Divisional Headquarters, following credible intelligence on the gruesome murder of a yet-to- be-identified middled-aged woman.

According to her, the suspects will be arraigned in court upon conclusion of investigation. (NAN)
