By -

The Imo State Police Command has refuted a video currently making the rounds in the media allegedly the attack and killing of police officers at Emekuku in Owerri North LGA of Imo State on November 17, 2023.

This was contained in a statement issued in Owerri on Saturday by the Imo State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Henry Okoye.

The Police Spokesperson stated that there was no record of any incident of attack or killing of police officers in Imo State yesterday.

The police spokesman revealed that the incident shown in the viral video occurred at Nwofe Road, in the outskirts of Abakiliki Town, adding that the Ebonyi State Police Command has issued a statement to confirm the attack, stating further that an intense manhunt currently ongoing to hunt down the hoodlums responsible for the dastardly act.

The Commissioner of Police, Imo State Command, CP Aboki Danjuma, urged the general public to disregard the misinformation as circulated by rumour peddlers and miscreants whose stock in trade is to circulate false information capable of causing panic and apprehension amongst the good people of Imo State.

The CP encourages Imolites to go about their lawful business without fear or intimidation, insisting that the command under his watch is relentless in ensuring the maximum safety and security of the law-abiding residents in the state as well as in sustaining the already established peace and nightlife in the state.

The CP beckoned on ‘Ndi Imo’ to continue to cooperate with the police and other sister security agencies in the state by reporting any suspicious person or clandestine activities observed in their vicinity to the nearest police station.

He further called on the media to continue to cooperate with the command by reporting verified and credible news to the public.
