The 34 Artillery Brigade, Obinze, and Imo State Police Command have dismissed rumours making the rounds that there was a clash between the police and Army in Owerri.
This was disclosed in a joint statement by the spokesman of the Imo Police Command, CSP Michael Abattam, and the Acting Assistant Director of Army Public Relations, Captain Joseph Baba Akubo.
According to the statement, the report is malicious and falsely fabricated by criminals who intend to create confusion and give an impression of a lack of synergy amongst the security agencies in Imo State.
It added that the law enforcement and security agencies in Imo State will continue to synergize and bring to book all criminals and halt their activities in the state.
Both agencies reiterated their commitment to protect law-abiding citizens and ensure a safe environment for the people to go about their businesses without fear or intimidation.
