The Police Command of the Federal Capital Territory has denied that a police division in Abuja was attacked and set on fire by hoodlums in a viral video currently trending on social media.
The command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Yusuf Mariam, disclosed this in a statement obtained by TOS News on Monday.
The statement reads: “We wish to debunk a viral video in the social media suggesting that a Police Division in Abuja was attacked and set ablaze by hoodlums.”
“The Command wants to state categorically that there is no record of such incident in the FCT.”
“On this note, we wish to reaffirm our undeterred resolve towards the protection of lives and property within the Federal Capital Territory. ”
The Command however called on members of the public to cooperate with the Police and other security agencies by providing prompt and useful information rather than circulating messages capable of causing undue panic amongst well-spirited residents of the FCT.
