The Delta State Police has debunked allegations that the Commissioner For Youth in the State, Agbateyiniro Weyinmi, had sacks of guns as published by a certain media firm.

The Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, (PPRO), Bright Edafe said that even the State Commissioner of Police, Abaniwonda Olufemi cautioned against the circulation of fake news, even as he urged Nigerians to disregard the publication.

Edafe said: “The Command is aware of a false publication credited to one Fejiro Oliver posted across some social media platforms.

“Alleging that the said Commissioner of Youth had been found with a sack containing guns, and in the false report, he also stated that the guns were handed over to Ekpan Police Station while the Commissioner held four guns to himself, the writeup further stated that the said commissioner ordered one of his boys to use the guns to murder a policeman in Delta State.

“After a careful analysis of the write-up, it is obvious that the writer is being mischievous, and the Command does not wish to go into any debate with him.

“But for the avoidance of doubt and for members of the public to be informed, the Command wishes to state clearly that no incident like that was recorded in the Command, the write-up is not only mischievous but laughable.

“Members of the Public are advised to disregard the publication completely as it is misleading and mischievous and the intent of writing such a false and misleading and non-existent incident is known only to the writer.

“Members of the public, media, and journalists are advised to continue to confirm such publications from the Command through the office of the Delta State Police Command Public Relations Officer so they can be properly informed.

“Commissioner of Police Delta State, CP Abaniwonda Olufemi therefore warns that the Command will not tolerate any false or misleading news by mischief makers, noting that anyone found wanting will be identified, arrested and duly prosecuted by the Law.”
