The FCT police command has debunked a video currently circulating on social media showing a police station in Abuja being attacked and set ablaze by hoodlums.
A statement on Tuesday by the command’s spokesperson, Mariam Yusuf obtained by our correspondent, Toffa Momoh said there was no record of such incident in the FCT.
According to the police, the video is a handwork of mischief makers seeking to bring panic and tension within the territory.
The police while assuring residents of the city of adequate security of lives and property also enjoined members of the public to report any suspicious activities to the nearest police station.
The FCT administration has expressed concern over the massive encroachment and human activities around the USUMA DAM water treatment reserve area.
The administration also warned encroachers that they stand the risk of imminent danger in the event of any failure as the volume of water from the dam can submerge the entire Bwari Area Council.
FCT Permanent Secretary, Olusade Adesola gave the warning in Abuja while inspecting the lower USUMA DAM treatment plant.
He condemned the spate of vandalism of government critical infrastructure while stressing that the FCTA is taking precautionary measures to avert any emergency.
The Permanent Secretary noted that the administration will continue to prioritise the maintenance of the Dam for optimum service delivery.
He directed the Managing Director of FCT Water Board, Joy Okoro to work with the security department to have civil defence personnel at the dam.
The FCT Directorate of road traffic services has confiscated several vehicles within the territory for violating traffic laws.
Speaking to newsmen, the agency’s public relations officer, Kalu Emetu said the exercises lasted for over five hours with forty-one motorcycles, twenty-two cars and fourteen tricycles impounded.
According to the PRO, the exercise was part of efforts to ensure free flow of traffic in the territory.
