IT IS AN OLD STORY” SAYS ENUGU POLICE COMMAND
The Enugu State Command of the Nigeria Police Force has reacted to the electronically induced news story in Vanguard online titled: “Herdsmen Invade Enugu Community, Kill Two, 19 Missing”, which was first published TWO YEARS AGO, precisely on 14th February, 2016, describing it as “a reoccurring misleading OLD STORY” that should be disregarded, accordingly.
A statement by the command Public Relations Officer (PRO), SP Ebere Amaraizu, stated that the force is worried over the reoccurrence of the story in the “Most Commented” section of Vanguard online, saying: “This is obviously an old story which the command had promptly and diligently handled in 2015”.
SP Amaraizu said that there is no any issue between the herdsmen and their host communities in Enugu State, maintaining that the entire state has remained peaceful and calm.
He therefore, advised members of the public, particularly the people of the state to always disregard the online report in the event reoccurrence, disclosing that the command is in contact with the media organization to prevent future occurrence of such “misleading and frightening report”.
