“The suspect was intercepted and arrested on Oct. 20 by  eagle-eyed police operatives while trying to escape with a blue coloured Mazda BRV 822 BS,” he said

The car was reportedly snatched at gun point at Gosa, near Lugbe in Abuja.

The police spokesman said that the suspect's accomplice escaped from the car when he sighted the policemen on duty.

Meanwhile, the FCT Commissioner of Police, CP Muhammad Mustafa, has ordered the transfer of the suspect and exhibit from Zuba Police Division to the Command Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, CIID, Abuja for further investigation.

“The suspect in police custody has been cooperating with the Team of Police detectives in the ongoing investigation.

“He will be charged to court on conclusion of investigation.
