A statement issued by the Command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP William Ovye Aya on Friday, said the reports flying round in some online media ( NOT Press) was misleading and fake, urging the general public to disregard such news.
Aya stated categorically that no such incident occurred nor was reported anywhere in Kogi State.
His words” The news of the purported kidnap of the 18 Kano traders in Kogi State is fake and capable of misleading the public on the Security situation in the State.
“It is pertinent to let the public be aware that the Kogi State Police Command in collaboration with other security agencies is determined to guarantee the protection of lives and property in the state.
“The Commissioner of Police Ede Ayuba Ekpeji psc urges members of the Press as well as social media handlers to always find out the true nature of the incident and its location before publishing the story so as not to misinform the general public and create mistrust among the good people of Kogi State and Nigeria in general”.
