Police Debunk Rumour Of Threats, Recurrent Attacks By An Unidentified Armed Group In Eneka

The attention of the Rivers Police Command has been drawn to phantom online news on: “BULWARK INTEL: Warning/Insecurity, 1524 hrs., Nigeria ???????? (Rivers State), 17 June 2023”.

The command wishes to state that the purported threats of recurrent attacks by an Unidentified Armed Group (UAG) within the Eneka axis in Port Harcourt resulting in an unascertained number of casualties including 10 fatalities is false, baseless and not verifiable, as it only exists in the imagination of mischief-makers.

Preliminary investigation carried out, including interfaces and interviews within the Eneka axis in Port Harcourt revealed that no such thing happened.

It is also important to note that no Individuals and businesses reported a case of attacks by an Unidentified Armed Group to us.

So, the command is urging the public to regard the report as fake news as it is only intended to overheat the security situation in Rivers state.
