The Kwara state Commissioner of Police, Lawan Ado, yesterday, debunked rumours making the round that some police men of ‘D’ Division, Adewole, Ilorin of the state’s command were involved in ritual activities.
The police commissioner also denied any confrontation between police men and military personnel at the Adewole police state.
He said the command had investigated the matter and that there was no iota of truth in it and urged members of the public to ‘‘discountenance’’ such rumours.
The CP, who addressed journalists at the headquarters of the command in Ilorin, however, said there was only a ‘‘case of breach of trust reported by a military officer’’ at the station, which according to him, was what prompted the rumour that soldiers invaded the station.
‘‘We are calling on any citizen of this state, who is aware of this allegation or any similar activity, to own up and come and tell us in confidence. We are going to investigate it and anyone who is found wanting will not be speared by police authority,’’ he assured.
Lawan, who read a message being circulated on the social media to journalists ,said the rumours only emanated from the social media which he said were ‘‘not credible’’ .
