The FCT Police Command has reacted to a viral video of a woman alleging that some Muslim men came to stop Christians from registering for their Permanent Voters Card (PVC).
The alleged incident was said to have occurred at Lugbe Federal Housing Estate in Abuja.
In the trending video, the woman claimed the Muslim men came to the registration center to disrupt the process because “Harina” (Christians) were there.
However, the FCT Police Command in a statement released on Twitter, has refuted the claim while noting that the video was either doctored or not recent.
According to them, they deployed men to the said location immediately they got wind of the alleged incident and nobody was found there.
Read the statement below,
“As at when we caught wave of the erroneous information, (at about 7:30 -8:00 am ) the DPO Lugbe led a team of Policemen men to the said venue, registration wasn’t going on or has not started as no one was found at the venue.
This video is suspected to have been doctored or not dated recent. We strongly urge members of the public to disregard the baseless news and to stop its promulgation .
While investigation is ongoing to find the source of the news, monitoring and surveillance continues on the scene.
ASP ODUNIYI OMOTAYO
