…..Says the publication is completely false and should be completely disregarded.

Delta State Police Command has said that a publication credited to one Fejiro Oliver that said that a sack of guns was recovered from the Commissioner of Youths in the state, Hon. Agbateyiniro Weyinmi is completely false and should be completely disregarded.

A statement on Tuesday by the Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Edafe Bright, said that Delta State Commissioner of Police, CP Abaniwonda Olufemi has cautioned against the circulation of fake news.

The statement read, “The Command is aware of a false publication credited to one Fegiro Oliver postal across some social media platforms. Alleging that the said Commissioner of Youth had been found with a sack containing guns,” saying that “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.”

“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.”

Furthermore, Delta Police Command advised members of the public 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 in accordance with the Law.”
