The Zamfara State Police Command has dismissed media publications that there was an attack on its station at Shinkafi.

Recall that there were reports on Thursday alleging that armed bandits attacked a police station and carted away arms and ammunition.

Following the reports, the Zamfara State Police Command, in a statement by SP Mohammed Shehu, Police Public Relations Officer, on Sunday, said contrary to a misleading report on Page 8 of the Daily Trust Newspaper of Saturday 25th September 2021, there was no attack on any police station in Shinkafi LGA or any part of Zamfara State.

“Similarly, the report of an attack on Shinkafi town was also inaccurate. What happened was that in the early hours of Friday, 24th September 2021, armed bandits in their large number attempted to attack Shinkafi, but were proactively repelled by the joint police and military operatives stationed in the town, with heavy casualties suffered by the bandits.

“No loss of life either from the security forces or the inhabitants. Similarly, nobody was abducted,” the statement said

According to him, the security situation in the town is very calm, with communities going about their legitimate businesses. While new security measures are being enforced effectively.

He said the Command is surprised by the level at which a reputable Newspaper like the Daily Trust published such a sensitive security report without proper confirmation from the police or any constituted authority when their correspondent was in Gusau.

The statement added that members of the press, as well as the general public, are enjoined to desist from airing fake and unsubstantiated stories. Instead, they should verify any information that comes their way before writing reports.
