In statement, FCT police spokesperson, DSP Josepine Adeh, said the police commissioner, Babaji Sunday, said a task force had been set up to arrest and address such cases.
The police PRO also said the commissioner had asked the divisional police officers to arrest and prosecute violators. The statement said the use of drones was creating fears among residents.
