The Nigeria Police described reports that the Federal Capital Territory was being saturated with bombs as fake news.

Some reports in the news and on social media stated that bombs were being planted in FCT in connection with the terror alert issued by the United States on possible attacks in Abuja.

However, a statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said FCT is safe and there is no imminent threat.

The police decried instances where individuals who are “presumed to be peace ambassadors and patriotic agents of national unity in Nigeria” are spreading falsehood. The statement read, “I don’t think it will do our country any good to continually spread such fearful rumors to further create more panic to citizens and residents of the FCT and Nigeria at large.

“We still reiterate that the Federal Capital Territory is safe and there is no imminent threat, neither is the FCT being saturated with bombs as speculated in the news. We, therefore, urge residents of the FCT and Nigerians at large to disregard this fake news which was purportedly sponsored to create fear in our people and heat up the polity.

“We will continue to adopt all effective operational strategies to decimate the activities of non-state actors and other criminal elements in the country.”
