Customs allays fear on Concealment of Ammunition in Relief materials for IDPs * Says report on social media is fake news
The National Public Relations Officer of Nigeria Customs Service, NCS, DC Joseph Attah, has described the report on social media about concealment of ammunition in relief materials for Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, in North-East Nigeria as fake and misleading.
DC Attah, expressed great displeasure at the false report circulated on social media, even as he allayed fear of such concealment.
He pointed out the fact that pictures used in carrying this fake news are old photographs of ammunition, seized at Tincan Island Port Lagos, some years back.
DC Attah advised news men and the public to disregard such fake news.
He stressed that the fake report is a deliberate attempt by unpatriotic individuals to create fear in the minds of people and to threaten the relative peace Nigerians are enjoying at the moment.
