The Nasarawa State Police Command has warned residents of the state against raising false alarms alleging the disappearance of genitals.
This was made known in a statement signed by the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ramhan Nansel, and made available to newsmen on Wednesday in Lafia.
Nansel said the command has observed with dismay the ugly trend where members of the public tag individuals with causing the mysterious disappearance of genitals in different parts of the state.
The spokesperson added that usually the accused were attacked by mobs.
“The medical examination carried out on victims who reported cases of mysterious genital disappearance in Nassarawa-Eggon, Obi, Lafia, and Keffi Local Government Areas (LGAs) of the state gave all the victims a clean bill of health.
“In view of this, the police command wishes to state unequivocally that the cases of alleged mysterious genital disappearance are baseless, unfounded, and without proof.
“Thus, anyone caught engaging in mob action and jungle justice or raising false alarm that leads to grievous assault on any member of the public shall be arrested and made to face the full wrath of the law,” DSP Nansel added.
