By Adadainfo

The Enugu State Police Command, Saturday, described as fake the viral video where helicopters were dropping hundreds of unknown men in a hill in Enugu.

Our correspodent reports that the video showed the men being dropped on the top of Ugwu-Ajali hill bordering Ologo, Jamboree and Coal Camp areas of Enugu.

DSP Daniel Ndukwe, the command’s public relations officer, states this in a statement.

According to him, the locations of the video and the information were fake and ‘purely a product of the mongers’ figment of imagination and disinformation aimed at misleading and creating panic and confusion amongst law-abiding citizens of the state’.

The statement read in part, “The command, being mindful of the negative impacts of disinformation on public peace, security and safety in this age, is calling on the citizenry to totally disregard the unfounded and fake video, as there is no record of such incident in the mentioned locations or any other part of the state.”

Meanwhile, the state commissioner of police, CP Ahmed Ammani, has directed ‘discreet investigations to fish out the creators and peddlers of the fake video’. He reiterated the command’s ‘unwavering commitment to ensure maximum public security and safety of citizens of the state’.

He also called on residents of the state to remain law-abiding, vigilant and ‘endeavour to analyze and verify misleading social media information of this nature before acting on them’.

The CP enjoined the residents to report criminals and acts of criminality to the nearest police station or by calling the command’s hotlines on: 08032003702, 08075390883 or 08086671202, or email infoenugupolice@gmail.com.
