THE newly appointed Commissioner of Police (CP) in charge of the Federal capital Territory (FCT), Mr Benneth Igweh has assumed duty with a declaration that “one chance” was not known by law.

Addressing personnel of the  Command on Friday in Abuja, Igweh said “one chance” is robbery and so, the operators would be treated like robbers.

“I pity those that called themselves “one chance’ because there is no law that recognises one chance as an offence in Nigeria.

“If you have the audacity, whether man or woman to rob and call it “one chance”, we have the tenacity to treat you otherwise.

“In your interest, better find what to do or move away from the FCT because you will receive what you never expected.

“In the next few days, we will begin to act it out and FCT must return  to what it used to be,” he said.

The commissioner said FCT was a known terrain for him, and that he was prepared to tackle the security challenges currently being faced in the territory.

“I want to use this opportunity to inform the residents and indigenes of the FCT that peace has returned to the FCT from today.

“To the criminals that are raising their ugly heads, I want to inform you that Igweh you used to know is back and we are going to act it out,” he said.

Igweh called for support from indigenes and residents of the FCT for him to succeed in the fight against criminality.

“Whatever information you have, feel free to call us, when you see something say something so that the police can do something,” he added.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports  that Igweh was the Deputy Commissioner Police in charge of Operations in the FCT before his promotion as a CP.

His appointment as the CP in charge of FCT followed the promotion of his predecessor, Mr Haruna Garba to the rank of an Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG). (NAN)
