ANAMBRA POLICE DISMISS REPORTS OF GUNMEN ATTACK, SAY NO SOLDIERS KILLED

Anambra State Police Command has dismissed a report making the rounds that 21 Soldiers have been killed in Anambra State. 

This was contained in a statement by Police Public Relations Officers, SP Tochukwu Ikenga on Wednesday, urging the general public to disregard the report, saying that it is false and misleading.

According to the PPRO, Anambra State Police Command is aware of a misleading, unfounded, and false report titled Gunmen Kill 21 Soldiers in Anambra recently peddled by some online media and national dailies. The Command wishes to state that the report is untrue, a product of fiction, and the handiwork of mischief-makers. 

Ikenga also stated that the command in dismay at the news, has observed that the said hospital mentioned in the report, where the corpses of the soldiers are allegedly kept, does not exist in Awka, the state capital. 

He maintained that, "further inquiries were made by the  command, showing that there is no record of such an incident or otherwise, but deliberate acts by unscrupulous elements to cause tension in the state. 

"Therefore, the  command shall not hesitate to invoke relevant cyber laws on persons found wanting in this regard. 

"However, the  command urges the public to disregard the report.
