Police in Abia State have dismissed reports making the rounds that a cache of ammunition was evacuated in a mosque in Aba.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ezekiel Onyeke, who stated this in an interview with Vanguard attributed the development to the activities of rumour mongers and advised them to stop causing panic among residents of the state.
He said the Commissio-ner of Police, Habila Joshak, had assured residents of their safety and urged people to report suspected persons to security agencies.
He said: “I want to assure the public that police, in collaboration with other security agencies, have the capacity to respond to distress call anywhere. Security agents are working 24 hours”. (Vanguard)
