Following the reports of the alleged abduction of 18 passengers, in Igboora-Eruwa, Ibarapa, Oyo State, Oyo State Police Command has come out to debunk the existence of such crime on Thursday morning.
The state Commissioner of Police, Ngozi Onadeko, disavowed the report on Thursday.
The Police Commissioner said when the command got a wind of the kidnapping, it checked its authenticity and realised that nothing of such happened.
She said: “I will enjoin people to desist from carrying baseless rumours that will create fear in the society.
“Oyo State Command will continue working hard to make sure that lives and property are secure.
“People should give us credible information that will enable us to nip crime and criminality in the bud in the state.”
