    The Zamfara State Police Command, has dispel the rumours of a planned terrorist attack on churches in Zamfara state, insisting that the report is the handiwork of those he referred to as “mischief makers.”

    The video of a planned attack on churches in the state had gone viral on social media.

    But in a quick reaction to the report, the Zamfara State Police High Command, on Wednesday enjoined members of the public to disregard the report, saying that it is an attempt by some mischievous persons to mislead unsuspecting members of the public and cause disharmony through the recirculation of an old video.

    A statement issued by the State Police Public Relations Officer, Mohammed Shehu, revealed that the said video was allegedly recorded on November 8, 2021 during a Press Briefing by the State Police boss, Ayuba N. Elkanah.

    Shehu said the referenced video was culled from a confidence building Press Briefing granted by the Zamfara State Commissioner of Police in November 2021, to calm the tension caused by the recovery of a letter of threat to attack churches in the State.

    He urged members of the public and the media to disregard the video, as it is the handiwork of mischief makers.
