The Nigerian Police in a statement released by it’s Force PRO, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi at Force Headquarters yesterday 29th October, 2022 urged members of the public to disregard fake news being spread to create fear and panicking amongst Nigerians that the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja is unsafe and likely to be attacked by terrorists.
The Police PRO, said it is surprising and disheartening to read in the news and on social media that bombs are being planted in every area of the Federal Capital Territory, even from some individuals who are presumed to be peace ambassadors and patriotic agents of national unity in Nigeria.
“I dont think it will do our country any good to continually spread such fearful rumours to further create more panic to citizens and residents of the FCT and Nigeria at large.”
“We still reiterate that the Federal Capital Territory is safe and there is no imminent threat, neither is the FCT being saturated with bombs as speculated in the news. We therefore urge residents of the FCT and Nigerians at large to disregard this fake news which was purportedly sponsored to create fear in our people and heat up the polity.” said CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi
“We will continue to adopt all effective operational strategies to decimate the activities of non-state actors and other criminal elements in the country.” He finally said.
