Delta Police Command has assured Deltans of their safety, urging them to ignore a recent publication making rounds purportedly published by Fulani’s of Usman Dan Fodio leadership tagged “FULANI JIHADIST WARNINGS.”

The said publication was pasted in various locations in Asaba, the state capital and Agbor and gave the governors of the south south 72 hours to lift the ban on open grazing in the region.

But in a swift reaction, the police in a statement signed by the Acting Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Edafe Bright, said “the command under the watch of CP Ari Muhammed Ali, FCIA, psc+, is ever committed in its responsibly of providing security for all Deltans,” assuring members of the public to ignore the said publication which the security outfit said “must have been pasted by miscreants with the aim of creating panic in the state.”
