The Police Command in Nasarawa State on Tuesday dismissed report of an alleged blocking of the Makurdi-Abuja road by suspected herdsmen.

A report calling on commuters traveling from Makurdi to Abuja to cancel their journey due to the blocking of the road and killing of people had circulated on some social media platforms.

However, reacting, the Public Relations Officer of the command, ASP Samaila Usman, in a statement on Tuesday, described the report as ‘untrue’.

“We have been in touch with the Police Command in Benue and there is no report of such blockade on the road between Makurdi and Lafia, neither was there any road block from Lafia all the way to Abuja.

“The message being circulated is the handiwork of mischief makers bent on creating unnecessary tension and fear in the minds of people,” he said.

The spokesman urged commuters to disregard the report and go about their normal businesses as the police were doing their best to keep the roads free and safe.

Usman said the police would not relent in tracking down those behind the mischievous messages and bring them to justice.
