FCT Police reacts to claim of thugs waylaying drivers in traffic in Abuja …. Dismisses circulating video

Forensic analysis conducted by the Nigeria Police Force – National Cybercrime Centre has revealed startling findings regarding a video circulating purportedly depicting security concerns in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).


Contrary to initial impressions, the investigation confirmed that the incident depicted occurred in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and was posted by a South African individual on X (formerly Twitter) on April 22nd, 2024. The video falsely claimed the necessity of carrying handguns for travel in Ethiopia.


It is deeply concerning that this misleading video has been misappropriated to sow fear and misinformation among residents of the FCT.


Meanwhile, the FCT Commissioner of Police, CP Benneth Igweh has ordered a comprehensive investigation to uncover the original source of this misinformation and discern the motives behind its dissemination.


The Command reaffirmed its commitment to ensuring the safety and security of all residents of the FCT and will take all necessary legal actions to address this issue .


“We urge the public to remain vigilant and discerning in consuming information, especially in the digital sphere”FCT police command said.
