    Kidnap of 20 persons in Abuja fake news, say police

    The Federal Capital Territory Police Command has denied social media report that which state that 20 persons were kidnapped along Zuba axis of Abuja.

    The Command stated that no such incident was recorded as of Tuesday, urging residents to remain calm and law-abiding.

    This is contained in a statement signed by the Command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Yusuf Mariam.

    The statement said, “The attention of the FCT Police Command has been drawn to some malicious publications being circulated in some sections of the social media targeted at creating palpable tension amongst the well-spirited residents of the FCT, with particular reference to the alleged “kidnap of twenty (20) persons along Zuba axis”. The Command wishes to state categorically that there is no record of such incident as of Tuesday 30th March 2021.

    “It is unfortunate that these elements are unmindful of the frantic effort including proactive and reactive measures put in place by the Command in collaboration with key Community Stakeholders to tackle the emerging security challenges in the FCT.

    “Furthermore, it is worthy of note that, in its bid to rid the city of all forms of criminality, the Command has foiled several attempts by hoodlums to breach the peace of the FCT and arrested over 90 suspects between January-March 2021 in connection with different criminal activities including kidnapping, armed robbery, one chance robbery etc.

    “In view of the above, the Command enjoins residents to remain calm, law-abiding and verify every information they receive to avoid circulating fake news, which is capable of causing panic amongst members of the public.

    “Therefore, we wish to reaffirm our undaunted commitment towards the protection of lives and property within the Federal Capital Territory.

    “The Command implores residents to report all suspicious movements, emergency or distress, through these numbers: 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653 and 08028940883 and to report the conduct of Police Officers, call the Public Complaint Bureau (PCB) number:09022222352.”
