The Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr Samuel Aruwan, in a statement issued in Kaduna, dismissed the report as mischievous, fake and unfounded.
“The attention of the Kaduna state government has been drawn to a widely circulated message raising alarm on an alleged blockade of the Kaduna-Abuja road by bandits.
“The Kaduna state government wishes to firmly debunk this message and advises citizens to completely disregard the mischievous circulation,” he added.
Aruwan said that the government has been in constant touch with security agencies in the general area and fully abreast of the security situation along the road and other locations.
He condemned the purveyors of the fake news, saying their action was very unfortunate and deliberately concocted to undermine the sacrifices of security agencies and government.
