The Force spokesman, Muyiwa Adejobi, has described as disheartening misinformation and disinformation that have engulfed the Nigeria nation, following a statement released by the U.S. Embassy that the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, would experience terrorist attacks.

He said: “It is surprising and disheartening to read in the news and on social media that bombs are being planted in every area of the Federal Capital Territory, even from some individuals presumed to be peace ambassadors and patriotic agents of national unity in Nigeria.”

He argued that he did not think it would do Nigeria and Nigerians any good to continually spread such fearful rumours, which would further create panic among citizens and residents of the FCT and Nigeria at large.

“We still reiterate that the Federal Capital Territory is safe and there is no imminent threat, neither is the FCT being saturated with bombs as speculated in the news. Therefore, we urge residents of the FCT and Nigerians to disregard this fake news which was purportedly sponsored to create fear in our people and heat up the polity. We will continue to adopt all effective operational strategies to decimate the activities of non-state actors and other criminal elements in the country,” said Adejobi.
