The Sokoto Police Command on Sunday has debunked reports that it has categorised one of the suspected killers of Deborah at Shagari College of Education as a foreign from Niger Republic.
According to the statement, “The attention of Sokoto State Command was drawn to an online publication in NEWSLEAK by one Segun Adegbite on 14th may, 2022.
He alleged that, a top police source told Peoples Gazette that, Sokoto Police Command has categorized one of the suspects during the incident at Shagari College of Education as a foreign intruder from Niger Republic who came in illegally to perpetrate the act.”
ASP Sanusi Abubakar, Police Public Relations Officer Sokoto Police Command in a statement, described publication is an act by some mischievous makers trying to create chaos into the mind of law-abiding citizens and to distabilse the existing peaceful atmosphere restored as a result of Thursday’s incident.
It further added that the fabricated publication which claimed its sources from the Command is false and cannot be substantiated, saying the command did not issue any statement in that regard.
It appealed to all media outlets and members of the public to be advocates of peace and should not publish unverified stories.
