POLICE PRESS RELEASE.
FAKE VIDEO CLIP IN CIRCULATION ON SOCIAL
MEDIA.
The attention of the Edo State Command, has been drawn to a totally unfunded, mischievous, misleading and maliciously fabricated video, that has completely gone viral on the social media, that Fulani Herdsmen blocked the Benin-Lagos Expressway and killed five (5) people by Ugbogui Village, Edo State.
This Jung journalism is not only false, but dangerous and is an attempt by the mischief makers to incite the Public against the Police.
However, for the avoidance of doubt and to set the record straight, on the 18th of February, 2020, at about 2010 hours, oneJohn Owen and Godwin Abubu of Ugbogui Village under Iguobasuwa Divisional Headquarters in Ovia South West Local Government Area of Edo State, reported that at about 1600 hours of date some criminal Fulani Herdsmen numbering about ten (10) invaded their farms and kidnapped one Adebayo Abubu and took him into bush.
Immediately, the Divisional Police Officer mobilized his operatives and recovered a cutlass suspected to be that of the kidnappers.
On the 22nd of February, 2020,at about 1045 hours three (3) Men suspected  to be Fulani Herdsmen were arrested by the Police in connection with the death of the victim through a credible intelligence. The Police took the three (3) suspects and Mr Adebayo’s family to the farm where his body was found and recovered. On their way taking the corpse to the Mortuary some Ugbgui youths intercepted the Police, Hijacked the corpse and laid it down on the Benin-Lagos Expressway thereby causing  a terrible traffic for several hours. It took the interventions of the Police, the Nigerian Army and the Elders of Ugbogui to retrieved the Mr Adebayo Abubu’s dead body from the youths and later deposited at the Mortuary, while normalcy was restored on the Expressway.
To this end, the general public is advised to disregard the video.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police Edo State, CP Lawan Tanko Jimeta has
