Police deny diverting palliative items in Katsina, urge Nigerians to ignore viral video


The police in Katsina State have called on Nigerians to disregard a video circulating on social media that alleges the diversion of palliatives by police officers. The video in question has been described as misleading and an attempt to tarnish the good image of the police force.

According to the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in Katsina, ASP Aliyu Abubakar-Sadiq, a thorough investigation revealed that the bags of rice seen in the video, loaded onto a police vehicle, were intercepted and recovered from individuals who had fraudulently obtained more than their share of the palliatives. The police returned these bags of rice to the distribution venue.

The police emphasized that the video misrepresented the facts and attempted to exploit the efforts of officers deployed to provide support, security, and ensure the smooth distribution of the palliatives.

The public is urged to exercise caution and critical thinking when engaging with online content and to refrain from sharing unverified information that can contribute to misinformation. The police force remains committed to serving the people with honesty and integrity while upholding law and order in the community.
