Post created on 3:47 pm


Nigerians have been admonished by the police force in Katsina State to discard any information that has to do with the trending video on social media over the diversion of palliatives by men of the force.

In a statement issued by the Police PRO in Kastina State, ASP Aliyu Abubakar-Sadiq, says the video was aimed at tarnishing the Nigerian police force.

”After a thorough investigation, it was revealed that the bags of rice seen in the video in the police motor vehicle were intercepted and recovered from some unscrupulous entity.

“The unscrupulous entities fraudulently obtained more than the necessary share of the palliatives and the police returned them to the venue of distribution.

“The video misrepresents the facts and attempts to exploit the good efforts of the officers deployed to the venue to provide support, security coverage and ensure the smooth run of the event.”

The statement by Abubakar-Sadiq further went on to establish the fact that the command understood the concerns of the public and should know the kind of content to engage online.

”Sharing unverified information contributes to misinformation which has a detrimental impact on the reputation of officers saddled with the responsibilities of enforcing law, order and the overall well-being of the community.

“Together, we must unite to combat the spread of misinformation and work towards building a stronger and more understanding society.

“The command remains committed to serving the good people of the state with all honesty and integrity.”
