The Ebonyi Police Command has urged the general public to disregard reports circulating on social media that there is a serious war in the state.
Command spokesman SP Chris Anyanwu said in a telephone interview with the Abakaliki news agency on Thursday that the news was untrue.
According to Anyanwu, the news is fake and people should ignore it because there is no war in Ebonyi State.
He urged the public and social media handlers to always check their facts before assignment and misinformed people.
NAN recalls that the news began to spread in the early hours of Thursday on various social networks.
The news read, “There is currently a serious war in Ebonyi State. Eziulo and Ishielu fight again in a very bloody way. The main expressway is blocked.
There is no road leading to Enugu. Express Road is the heart of their fight. Please tell families and friends and share with any group to take extra care around the state and save lives.
