The FCT Police Command has cautioned residents against sharing false information about the alleged disappearance of male organs in the territory. The Commissioner of Police, CP Haruna G. Garba, noted that the false rumours trigger public anxiety and disrupt public peace.

The CP, who spoke through the Command’s spokesperson, SP Josephine Adeh, said: “An incident involving Rokeeb Saheed, who accused Lucky Josiah of causing his male organ’s disappearance, prompted this warning. After medical examinations, Saheed’s male organ was confirmed to be fine and Josiah’s injuries were treated.

“In a similar development, following a distress call that a male adult, name unknown, was being lynched by irate youths for alleged disappearance of the male organ of one John Ugwu, 17, on September 21, 2023, at around 7.40hrs, in Phase 2 Gwagwalada, Police operatives attached to Gwagwalada Police Divisional Headquarters swiftly mobilised to the scene, rescued and rushed the male adult to the hospital for medical attention, where he was later confirmed dead as a result of the severe injury inflicted on him on the pretext of a false allegation.”

“The Commissioner of Police, CP Haruna G. Garba, warns of stringent measures against spreading false information and urges the public not to resort to mob justice. The FCT Police Command is committed to preserving peace and security.

“He equally urges the public to promptly report distress calls and complaints through the following emergency lines: 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653, and 08028940883. Additionally, the Public Complaint Bureau (PCB) desk can be reached at 0902 222 2352.”
