Abuja (Sundiata Post) – The Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba Alkali has reacted to the reports that bombs are being planted in every area of the Federal Capital Territory, saying Abuja is safe and there is no imminent threat, neither is the FCT being saturated with bombs as speculated in the news.

Thr Police boss said 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.

He stated this on Saturday in a statement signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, Force Headquarters, Abuja, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi made available via the official twitter handle of the Nigeria Police Force @PoliceNG.

The full statement reads:

TERROR THREAT: 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.

We will continue to adopt all effective operational strategies to decimate the activities of non-state actors and other criminal elements in the country.

Thanks.
