The recent news circulating  social media that about 50 persons were ambushed and kidnapped along  Kaduna-Abuja highway by bandits has been dismissed by the Kaduna State Police Command
The command’s Deputy Public Relations Officer, ASP Nafiu Habib in a press statement issued in Kaduna, described the news as fake, NAN reports.

“The Command is categorically stating that the story in its entirety is fake news, not credible, and should be disregarded and discountenanced by the public,” he said.

“Kaduna-Abuja road is safe for users, the command has deployed additional personnel to all the identified flash points along the road,” he added.


Habib  urged the public to ignore the story as it was “ill-motivated and intentionally orchestrated to cause unnecessary panic and undermine the giant strides of the present leadership of the Force” in protecting lives and property of citizens.

“The Command will no longer tolerate or condone deliberate mischief and reckless publications aimed at defaming and derogating the integrity of the Force from any individuals or groups.

“The full weight of the law would be aggressively applied to protect the good image of the Command.


“The Command is assuring the media of its continuous cooperation in guaranteeing public safety and security across the State,” he added.
