By Jide Afolabi, Jos

The Nigeria Police Force, Plateau State Command has called on the public to discard the inciting document titled “The Final Jihad on the Plateau’ describing it as fake.

The document according to the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Plateau State Command, the document is being circulated by mischief makers on the Plateau with the “sole aim of creating fear, anxiety and hate among the peace loving people of Plateau State with the aim of causing a breakdown of law and order in the State.”

In a press release signed and issued today, Tuesday by the PPRO, a copy which was sent to CityMirrorNews, he noted that the originator of the inciting document opened a fake Facebook account to circulate it and closed it thereafter.

“After a thorough and careful investigation, the Plateau State Police Command realised that the initiator of this inciting document opened a fake Face book Account just for this purpose which he has since closed down. The Command also found out that there was no truth in the write up and considers it as the handy work of faceless mischief makers who are bent on fanning the embers of religious and political hate and disunity in the State with a view to causing the breach of the peace in the State.

“The Plateau State Police Command therefore warn that, any individual or group of individuals caught circulating documents capable of inciting religious passion or promoting hate speeches will be dealt with in accordance with the extant laws of the land.” The statement said.

The Command urged members of the public to ignore such insidious write ups and go about their normal and lawful businesses.
