OWERRIâ€”Imo State Police Command says it had â€œobserved with concern that some elements in the society have let loose their tongues to make allegations against individuals and institutions, which allegations they are yet to substantiate.â€
The Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Linus Nwaiwu, stated the Commandâ€™s position in a statementÂ in Owerri.
â€œThe Command is aware that these allegations are deliberately designed to cause fear and palpable tension in the state,â€ he said.
He warned that all those making such allegations that are capable of causing a breech of the peace, were advised to desist from such unwholesome attitude, failure which they will be made to come forward with pieces of evidence to substantiate their claims.
â€œThe Command therefore enjoins law abiding citizens to ignore such unfounded allegations geared to discourage performance and malign genuine efforts of making Imo State crime free,â€ he said.
He urged the people to go about their legitimate business without fear of molestation as adequate security measures have been designed and adopted to keep hoodlums at bay in the state.
