…Says Protester arrested, professionally dispersed
The FCT Police Command has debunked the viral message in some sections of the social media purporting that ‘Omoyele Sowere was shot by a female Assistant Commissioner of Police’ at the Unity Fountain.
A statement by ASP Yusuf Mariam, Public Relations Officer said, “Contrary to the speculation, Police Operatives professionally restored calm at the Unity Fountain following attempts by a group of protesters to incite public disturbance.
“The protesters who went on the ramapage were resisted by Police Operatives in order to prevent them from causing a breakdown of law and order.
“There is no record of such incident as at the time of this release.
“The Command enjoins residents to remain calm and law-abiding while reaffirming its commitment towards the protection of lives and property within the FCT.”
