The Kogi State Police Command has debunked a report of mass abductions by Fulani bandits that has been going round on social media.
In a statement signed by DSP William Ovye Aya, he said: “The attention of the Kogi State Police Command has been drawn to a report on a social media that GUO, Ezenwata and Young shall grow luxurious buses Hijacked to unknown destination by Fulani Bandits at Lokoja express way after Okene and separated all the passengers of northern origin and made away with those from the south east after executing the drivers.
The Command wishes to state categorically clear that the story is not only the figment of the imagination of the Author, but totally false, fake, malicious aimed at manipulating the mindset of Nigerians and to hamper our peaceful coexistence. This same report was on social media at 2019 which was later found to be fake news. The story never happen in Kogi State. This further revealed how the author aimed to cause disunity among Nigerians.
Consequently, the Commissioner of Police, urges all peace loving citizens of Kogi State and the country at large to discountenance such mischievous information but gravitate towards issues that unite us rather than those that divide us.”
