The attention of the Kogi State Police Command has been drawn to the report making the round on social media that the Command asked it’s personnel to pay the sum of N10,000 as transport fare to and fro for Anambra Governorship election.
2. The Command wish to state unequivocally that, the report is not only the figment of the author’s imagination, but totally false, malicious and highly mischievous.
The Command did not request for any amount of money as transport fare from Officers deployed for the assignment.
3. The Commissioner of Police, CP Idrisu Dauda Dabban psc (+), fdc while addressing the Officers deployed for the election stated that, the Police authority is responsible for the transportation of it’s personnel to and fro to Anambra State. The Command is surprised at the false and unfounded report on social media.
4. Consequently, the Commissioner of Police urge the public to discountenance such mischievous information, while he ordered the Deputy Commissioner of Police Investigation to commence investigation into the alledged extortions.
