All The Videos Online Are Fake, We Have No Riot Or Protest Here – Delta State CP Reveals
The Delta Police Command has maintained there was no protests in the state, following the out presidential and national assembly elections.
The Election Commissioner of Police in Delta State, CP John Babangida said this in a statement signed by the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bright Edafe.
In a reaction to a video being circulated on social media, CP Babangida said,
“The Command is aware of some video clips being circulated on various social media platforms about an ongoing protest in Delta State, particularly in Warri and Asaba.”
“The video clip is not only false but completely misleading with the intention of creating panic in the state, which has been generally peaceful since the commencement of the 2023 general elections.
“Investigation has further revealed that the video clip is suspected to be an old video and as such, should be completely disregarded.
“To this end, the Election Commissioner of Police CP John Babangida, therefore, advises the public to not only ignore the video clip but desist from circulating such old video clips.
“The State is currently peaceful and calm, and the Command will do all within its powers to see that it remains so.”
He advised residents to recourse to security agencies in case of emergencies and also released contact numbers of the state police as follows: 08036684974, 08125958005, 09053872287
