The Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Police Command, on Monday, debunked a viral report that Sahara Reporters Publisher, Omoyele Sowore, was shot by a Police Officer at Unity Fountain, Abuja.

In a statement made available to the Press on Monday by Spokesperson of the Command, ASP Mariam Yusuf, the report is ‘false and fake news’.

She stated: “contrary to the speculation, Police Operatives professionally restored calm at the Unity Fountain following attempts by a group of protesters to incite public disturbance.”

“The protesters who went on the rampage were resisted by Police Operatives in order to prevent them from causing a breakdown of law and order. There is no record of such incident as at the time of this release.”

The Command admonished residents to remain calm and law abiding.
