The Zamfara State Police Command boss, CP Ayuba Elkana has urged Christians and the public to disregard a viral video of planned attack of churches.

According to the command’s spokesman, SP Mohammed Shehu, the CP has enjoined the public to disregard it and noted that it was an attempt by some mischievous persons to mislead unsuspecting members of the public and cause disharmony through the recirculation of an old video, recorded since November 8, 2021.

“For the purpose of clarification, the Command wishes to state that the referenced video was culled from a confidence building Press Briefing granted by the Zamfara State Commissioner of Police to calm, as at November 2021, the tension caused by the recovery of a letter of threat to attack churches in Zamfara State.

“The Command while reassuring the public of its commitment to the protection of lives and property in the state, calls on members of the public and the media to disregard the  video, as  it is the handiwork of mischief makers.”
