TERROR THREAT: POLICE REBUT CLAIMS OF BOMBS PLANTED ACROSS ABUJA
The Nigerian Police Public Relation Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi on Saturday said the news about an imminent terrorist attack is sponsored to create fear.
He urged Nigerians to disregard the news, as it is fake 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,” Mr Adejobi said.
He noted that it was disheartening to see news making rounds that every area of the FCT had been saturated with bombs.
“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.
Such news, he said, will do Nigeria no good as it will further create panic in citizens and residents of the FCT and Nigeria at large.
Mr Adejobi added the police will continue to adopt all effective operational strategies to decimate the activities of non-state actors and other criminal elements in the country.
