The Federal Capital Territory Police Command has revealed that about 62 cases of alleged disappearance of manhood have been reported across the territory.
The FCT Commissioner of Police, Haruna Garba made the development known while addressing newsmen at the command’s headquarters on Friday.
Garba further revealed that of the 62 cases reported to the command, 51 suspects have been arrested and charged to court for misinformation and causing breach of peace in the FCT.
According to the police, the 51 suspects wrongly accused others of causing their manhood to disappear, leading to mob actions taken against the victims (those accused).
The CP, however, called on residents of the territory to always cooperate with security operatives in a bid to ensure that the city is free of crimes.
Garba said, “The first case of male organ disappearance was first recorded in Gwagwalada on 21/09/2023. It has spread all over FCT where as of today we had a total of 62 cases reported.
“Fifty-one suspects were charged to court for giving false information and inciting public disturbance. To this end, I want to reiterate my commitment and willingness to always work with you (residents of FCT) to defeat crime in all its forms in the Federal Capital Territory.”
