The Niger State Police Command, Friday, denounced publications circulating in some social media that a ‘notorious bandit declared self as governor in Niger State’.

DSP W. A Abiodun, the command’s public relations officer, stated this while clarifying the trending news.

Abiodun stated that, “The command wishes to state categorically with all sense of responsibility that such publication is false in its entirety, and it only exists in the figment of the imagination of the author.

“The joint security teams in the state in collaboration with the state government are working assiduously to address the security challenges at hand, while tactical teams are placed at strategic locations within the volatile areas for security coverage.

“Members of the public are advised to ignore such publication, as it is an attempt by mischief-makers to cause panic through propaganda.

“News reporters are equally advised to desist from peddling such propaganda through their various platforms, as a respected fourth estate of the realm.”

It was earlier reported that the leader of the group that claimed responsibilities to have killed some military men in Niger State declared himself as governor of the state.

According to reports, famous terrorist Dogo Gide declared himself governor with the promise of providing security and welfare to any nation that submits to his government.

Reports claim about eight villages in Shriroro local government of Niger state have reportedly surrendered to Gide and paid allegiance to his terrorist group.

The villages that reportedly pledged allegiance to Gide and his group include Kusasu, Kwaki, Chukuba, Gulana, Apai, Nakuna, Yanka, and Kurebe.
