Police Foil Attempted Robbery Attack Near Anglican Church in at Aguleri
The attention of the Anambra State Police Command has been drawn to online report in the social media anchored by one Odogwu Aluta that “suspected Umuleri boys invaded St Peter’s church, Otoucha Aguleri early this morning and sliced a lot of worshippers with machetes”.
The report is not only false but Mischievous,probably orchestrated by mischief makers who wants to truncate the relative peace in the Area and instigate communal crisis between the two neighbouring Communities.
For the avoidance of doubt,there was attempted robbery at the early hours of today 2/7/2019 at residential quarters near St. Peter’s Anglican Church, Otoucha which was foiled and the Command has launched aggressive manhunt for the perpetrators in order to bring them to Justice.
Consequently, there is nothing to show that the incident is communal as no fact so far associated it with any community.
Persons circulating this inciting publication are warned to desist forthwith as any one apprehended will face the full wrath of the law.
Finally, the Command further assures the citizens of adequate protection and urged them to disregard the false alarm and go about their legitimate business, please.
