Police speak on video showing Muslim youths burning Igbo man

The FCT Police Command has reacted to a trending video wherein an Igbo young man was set ablaze by irate Muslim youths.



DSP Anjuguri Manzah, Police Public Relations Officer, in a statement sent to DAILY POST on Monday, said the incident did not occur in Abuja as widely believed.

“The Command emphatically want to note that discreet checks have been conducted across the nooks and crannies of FCT and no incident of such nature was recorded or even reported”, it read.

“It is also pertinent to add that the environment depicted in the circulating video does not represent any part of FCT.

“Members of the public are therefore advised to disregard and consider as misleading the circulating video.

“Meanwhile, the Command wishes to reassure members of the public of its preparedness and commitment to protect lives and property and to forestall any act that could result in the breakdown of law and order in the Federal Capital Territory.

“Social media users are also advised to be mindful of information they circulate through their platforms.”
