How hoodlums, soldiers clashed at Banex Plaza – Police

The Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Police Command has revealed details of the fracas at Banex Plaza in Abuja on Saturday.

DAILY POST earlier reported that pandemonium broke out at the popular Banex Plaza phone market, located in the Wuse 2 area of Abuja, following a clash between hoodlums and some military personnel.

Explaining what transpired in the popular phone market, the FCT Police Public Relations Officer, SP Josephine Adeh said, “One Suleiman Ahmed who had earlier gotten a phone from one Suleiman Ibrahim, a shop owner at New Banex, went with four soldiers to persuade the seller for replacement upon discovery that the phone is faulty, which met the resistance of the shop owner.”

The action, according to the Police, resulted in a confrontation and squabble with the military personnel.

The PPRO said the development led some irate mobs in the market to attack the military personnel, leading to an uproar in the area.

“All parties were invited for questioning, the military personnel have been handed over to their organization for necessary action to be taken.

“While normalcy has since been restored in Banex and its environs, the Commissioner of Police FCT, CP Benneth Igweh, urges residents to peacefully go about their lawful businesses without fear from any quarters,” she added.
