Environmental board recovers daggers, knives from beggars
« on: November 01, 2016, 08:57:30 PM »

The Abuja Environmental Protection Board and the Ministerial Task on Environment have raided a hideout of suspected beggars and scavengers in Wuse Zone 4, Abuja, where dangerous weapons including knives, daggers and cutlasses were seized.

A combined team of the AEPB and the Task Team on Environment, who were on a routine operation carried out the raid.The AEPB Director, Mrs. Oluwatoyin  Olanipekun, who disclosed this on Tuesday in Abuja, stated that all those arrested during the operation had been handed over to the police for investigation and necessary action, a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the FCT Minister, Muhammad Sule said.

The director restated that begging and scavenging activities in the Federal Capital City remain prohibited and warned that defaulters would be prosecuted at the Sanitation Mobile Court.

She noted the theft of manhole covers and fingered the scavengers as the prime suspects of the crime.

This, she stated,  necessitated the FCT Administration to ban their activities in the city.

Olanipekun emphasised that the AEPB, the Ministerial Task Team and other security agencies in the FCT would soon commence full enforcement and prosecution of scavengers and beggars.

The statement read, “The director called on the residents of the FCT to give useful information to the authorities and security agencies to ensure that miscreants and criminal minded persons are exposed and dislodged from the city.

“She said that the AEPB would not relent in its effort to ensure that the FCT Environment remains clean and protected for the benefit of the entire residents of the Territory.”
