The Commissioner of Police Anambra State CP Echeng Echeng today 11th July 2022 calls on reporters to always bring to play the practice of ethical investigative journalism especially in building social peace and enhancing public safety.
Echeng made this disclosure while reacting to a report published about 11-Year-Old Boy Kidnapped During Mass In Anambra_ and a facebook user, Anambra Connect, tagged ”St Anthony Catholic Church on fire”
In a release made available by DSP Ikenga Tochukwu, PPRO Anambra State Police Command, in Awka stated that the incidents was not reported to the police, from the publications the circumstances surrounding the rescue of the kidnapped boy was misgiving and how the said fire was put off without recourse to the appropriate agency was dubious.
A visit to the church premises shows no fire of any such occur and the church buildings intact. It is obvious that the intention of the publisher is to incite tension and discredit the peace we enjoy in the state.
However, the CP assures citizen especially Ndi Anambra that the confidence repose on police and other security agencies shall not be taken for granted especially in providing security services.
He encouraged them not to live in fear of any threat at all time and always trust police will their problems to handle.
