Police React To Rumour Of Buried Bombs In Abuja



The Nigeria Police Force has reacted to news that some group of terrorists buried bombs in Abuja.

According to a statement released by the Force Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi on Saturday, the rumour that has been going round is not true.

Adejobi said the fake news began to go round after the terror alert by the United States, the United Kingdom, and others.

He stated that some of those spreading the news are people believed to be peace ambassadors and patriotic agents of national unity in Nigeria.

According to the statement, spreading false information like that is capable of causing more panic across the country and the FCT, which will do Nigeria no good.

He restated that the FCT is safe for all to stay in and that there is no imminent threat, nor is the FCT saturated with bombs as speculated.

The police advised residents “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.”
