• Warns residents against circulating old videos on social media
The Delta State Police Command is warning people on social media spreading rumors of protest in the state. It stated that it is the handiwork of persons who are aiming to create confusion by circulating old videos on social media.
Reacting to the matter in his brief statement released to National Association of Online Security News Publishers, NAOSNP, the Delta Police PRO, DSP Bright Edafe informed: ‘The Command is aware of some video clips being circulated on various social media platforms about an ongoing protest in Delta State, particularly in Warri and Asaba. The video clip is not only false but completely misleading with the intention of creating panic in the state, which has been generally peaceful since the commencement of the 2023 general elections.’
