None of our operatives shot at Sowore – Abuja police


Police in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, say none of its officers shot activist, Omoyele Sowore, on Monday.

FCT Command Police Public Relations Officer, Mariam Yusuf, in a statement on Monday, said contrary to the report, police operatives deployed in the scene professionally and peacefully restored calm at the protest venue.

According to the statement titled, ‘Police restores calm at the Unity Fountain,’ “The FCT Command wishes to debunk the viral message in some sections of the social media purporting that ‘Omoyele Sowore was shot by a female Assistant Commissioner of Police’ at the Unity Fountain.

“Contrary to the speculation, police operatives professionally restored calm at the Unity Fountain following attempts by a group of protesters to incite a public disturbance.

“The protesters, who went on the rampage, were resisted by police operatives in order to prevent them from causing a breakdown of the law and order. There is no record of such an incident as of the time of this release.

“The command enjoins residents to remain calm and law-abiding while reaffirming its commitment towards the protection of lives and property within the FCT.”
