Corps Member Incident In Kaura Namoda Old, Misrepresented Says Police

The Nigeria Police has clarified the misinformation circulating on social media regarding an alleged incident involving a Corps member in Kaura Namoda, Zamfara State.

According to a press release on Friday, 28th June 2024 signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said that the incident in question occurred in 2015 and has been grossly misrepresented.

The statement read, “A female student had written something the Corps member deemed insulting during a test, and in response, the corps member decided to punish her by asking the student to crawl on her knees, which caused her some injuries.

“This punishment did not sit well with the student’s family, prompting them to escalate the matter to the Police. The Area Commander in charge of the area at the time exercised his discretion and detained the corps member temporarily.

“The Commissioner of Police intervened thereafter and directed the corps member’s release. The matter has since been amicably settled, and there was no further escalation beyond this point.

“Additionally, the picture currently circulating alongside the news on social media has no connection to the actual individuals or events involved in the referred case. It is an unrelated image being used to sensationalize and mislead the public.

“The Nigeria Police Force therefore urges well-meaning members of the public, policing stakeholders, particularly the NYSC body, to discountenance the falsehood being perpetrated in the media space as they bear no real connection to the actual event.

“The Police also wishes to caution, in strongest terms, those who are bent on generating and circulating falsehood to specifically discredit the government, Nigerian institutions, cause discomfort and create fears in the mind of the general public to desist as such act is not only unpatriotic but also criminal and punishable under the law.
