‘We have not arrested any foreign national with helicopter distributing weapons to bandits in our area of supervision’- CP Kuryas.Adunni Adetola
The Niger Police Command said it had not arrested any foreign national distributing weapons with a helicopter to bandits in the state.
Niger State Commissioner of Police, Monday Kurya told the News Agency of Nigeria in Minna on Friday that such an incident never occurred in any part of the state.
CP Kuryas described the report as ”fake news circulating in social media as such incident never happened in the state.
We have not arrested any foreign national with helicopter distributing weapons to bandits in our area of supervision.”.
He called on members of the general public to disregard such reports and support the police with required information that could aid in apprehending men of the underworld in the state.
All we require from good Samaritans is vital information on the movement of bad characters in their midst, especially those in rural areas to tackle the menace of kidnapping, banditry and cattle rustling,” he urged.
The commissioner stated that the police would remain resolute and focused in “exterminating enemies of our collective security”.
Mr Kuryas urged law-abiding citizens to be vigilant and promptly report all suspicious characters to security agencies nearest to them.
