The Enugu State Police Command has debunked the rumor in the social media of a bomb explosion in the state.
The Command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Ebere Amaraizu, in a statement on Saturday in Enugu said that the video circulating in some sections of the social media was “an attempt by mischief makers to instill fear in the minds of the public’’.
The statement read in part: “The attention of the Command has been drawn to the misleading and false video in circulation in some sections of the social media on an alleged bomb blast at Otigba Junction within Enugu metropolis.
“The Command, hereby, wish to inform members of the public particularly those who may have been misinformed with such that there is no bomb incident and explosion in entire Enugu State.
“Hence, members of the public are advised to ignore the misleading information and go about their normal lawful businesses.
“This false information is an attempt by mischief makers to cause panic and fear in the minds of law-abiding members of the public,’’ he said.
Amaraizu assured of the Command’s commitment to ensuring the safety of lives and property of the residents of the state.
