No Bomb Explosion At Izombe Market: Imo Police

Reports from Imo police command has debunked the news claiming that one of the major market was set ablaze was false. Read the statement made for press men..

. “

The attention of the Imo State Police Command has been drawn to a false newspaper publication in the DAILY SUN Newspaper of 21ST June, 2022 captioned “SIT-AT-HOME: GUNMEN BOMB IMO MARKET” and online news captioned “BOMB EXPLOSION ROCKS IMO MARKET, SCORES INJURED, VEHICLES BURNT” written by one Stanley Uzoaru a reporter of Daily Sun Newspaper, alleging that “gunmen while enforcing sit-at-home order of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) yesterday, 20/06/2022, BOMBED the popular Izombe Central Market in Oguta Local Government Area of Imo State; that they earlier warned the traders not to come out on Monday’s but they ignored them. Irked by their defiance, the gunmen threw bomb inside the market and everybody started running for safety, they poured fuel on two vehicles and everywhere went up in flame”.

It is preposterous and most unfortunate that, a notable national newsprint will publish a sensitive story without ascertaining the true facts. The command is miffed and view this publication as malicious, false, misleading and a calculated attempt to undermine the already improved security situation being enjoyed in the state and also to dampen the confidence the Command has achieved with the good people of the state since the arrival of the Commissioner of Police, CP Mohammed Ahmed Barde, psc (+), few months ago
