The Enugu State Police Command on Thursday dismissed as false and unfounded rumours of alleged invasion of Umuchigbo Abakpa Nike community by herdsmen. This is contained in a press statement signed by the commands spokesman, Mr Ebere Amarizu and made available to newsmen in Enugu.
It said that the rumours were engineered by those wishing to cause disaffection in the state. “The attention of the Enugu State Command of the Nigeria Police Force has been drawn to the rumours making the round that some violent herdsmen have invaded Umuchigbo Abakpa Nike.
“The rumour has it that the community and others closed to it have been deserted, but the command wishes to make it clear that this is not only false but baseless and unfounded.”
