#ENDSARS: No protest in Abuja – Police


The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command has debunked viral videos and pictures in circulation in social media suggesting that another ‘ENDSARS protest’ was staged in the Federal Capital Territory on Monday.

Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Yusuf Mariam, called on members of the public to disregard the videos and pictures which is mischievous and intended to cause tension amongst residents.

“While urging residents to remain calm, law-abiding and go about their legitimate endeavors peacefully, the Command wishes reiterate its unflinching commitment to the protection of lives and property within the FCT,” Mariam said.
