Ex FCT Director Loses Car To Thieves In Abuja

Car thieves are back in the nation’s Federal Capital Territory, Abuja as a car belonging to the former Director in the Department of Information at the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA), Alhaji Ibrahim Biu was stolen yesterday, September 27.

Ibrahim Biu, who was also once an editor with defunct New Nigerian Newspaper in Kaduna, narrated that he parked the car, a Corolla S, 2006/7 model with registration number KUJE359TV around the FCTA/AGIS in Area 11 at about 3.00pm and went into an office nearby only for him to return less than 20 minutes later to find that the car was gone.

He said that the first thing that came to his mind was that the car was towed away by officers of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), but that when he traced the office, he could not find it there, adding that he immediately reported to both the FCT police command and Garki police station.

Ibrahim Biu, who was obviously shaken by the loss of the car which contained many vital documents, including his National identity card, the originals of the vehicle particulars, lamented the frequent stealing of vehicles around the FCDA area.

Information reaching us indicated that stealing of vehicles around the FCDA at area 11 has remained endemic and rampant in spite of many police men and women posted to that place daily to protect lives and property of innocent workers and visitors to FCTA.

It was gathered that because of the frequent stealing of vehicles, many car owners prefer to go to the FCTA to keep important appointments, in public vehicles while leaving their vehicles in their homes or offices elsewhere.
