The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) for the Command, SP Ebere Amaraizu, said in Enugu on Tuesday that, “the attention of the command has been drawn to some online tweets and postings in the new media (social media), undermining efforts of security operatives “.

According to the police image maker, such tweets and postings have created wrong impression of non-existing and unconfirmed kidnapping activities in some parts of the state.

“The command, through support of the government and good people of the state, will stop at nothing at ensuring that the existing peace, security and safety is sustained, to keep maintaining the state as the safest in the country.’’
