The Zamfara State Police Command has denied report of a purported attack of Sokoto State Mass Transit Bus and kidnapped of the passengers in it at Kwashabawa village in Zurmi local government.
The report Police said is a fiction and imagination of mischief makers who derived pleasure in spreading rumours to instil fear into the citizenry.
According to Mohammed Shehu,the true position of things was that, on that day at about 0900hours, a Mass transit Bus conveying passengers from Sokoto to Katsina developed a mechanical fault along the area in question.
The passengers were apprehensive and jittery, hence they all scattered and took to flight, leaving the bus and their luggage.
The Police in Zurmi got the information and rushed to the scene. They uploaded all the passengers luggage and brought same to Police station for safe keeping to avoid miscreants stealing the passengers valuables. All the passengers later emerged and claimed their luggage and left.
The Police Command calls on the good citizens of the state to shun the viral video and avoid spreading the misleading information that can retard societal cohesion and progress.
