The Nigeria Police Force has dismissed reports of bombs being planted in every area of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja.
Reacting to widespread rumours of planted bombs, Force spokesperson, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, in a statement said, “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 don’t 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.
The police insisted that the FCT remains safe and there are no imminent threat of terror attacks as speculated in the public.
The Force reassured 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.
