The Ogun State Police Command has said there was no Boko Haram attack on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
This is contained in a statement by the state’s Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Muyiwa Adejobi, who said the said attack were rumours making the rounds particularly on social media, and that no police officers or civilians had been killed along the road.
He said, “There is no iota of truth in it, and it is just a rumour making the rounds on social media.
“Nothing of such attack has happened along the expressway, or any part of Ogun State.
“It is the handiwork of mischief makers to put fear in the minds of people.”
Explaining further, he said, “The rumour-mongers misunderstood the presence of police and other security officers at a point on the expressway, where a truck, loaded with wheat, fell across the road between Fidiwo and Ogunmakin in Obafemi Owode Local Government Area of state.
“They thought the presence of security officers was as a result of an attack.”
He urged the general public to disregard the rumour and go about their lawful businesses. Punch
