The Nigeria Police has denied reports of a kidnappers’ den close to the Police force headquarters in Abuja.
The Force Public Relations Officer, FPRO, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, in a series of tweets stated that the videos making the rounds is false.
Adejobi’s tweets read: “Fake News: No kidnappers den was discovered near the NPF Headquarters, Garki Abuja. Not at all.
“The news or video being shared was mere misinformation and the mischievous act of the enemies of the state to continually create fears in the residents of FCT and Nigerians in general.”
“However let me reiterate that the police command in the FCT, on the directive of the IGP, has embarked on an aggressive raid of black spots and destruction of some shanties that might be hideouts for criminals in Abuja.
“So no cause for alarm as we have taken necessary steps to decimate activities of hoodlums and criminal elements in the FCT and across the length and breadth of Nigeria.”
