The Ogun State Police Command has debunked rumours of an attack by herdsmen along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
Recall that the social has been agog all through Wednesday with reports that herdsmen have are waylaying and killing passengers along the route.
But in a swift reaction same day, the state Police Public Relations Officer Abimbola Oyeyemi urged the public to disregard the reports.
Oyeyemi said, “There is no attack by herdsmen or any other group in all the stretch of expressways across and within Ogun State.

“We make bold to say that the alleged attack being posted on social media is a lie.
“The picture attached to the post is that of an accident which occurred about eight years ago, exactly on the 31st of July 2010, while the purported voice recording was a stage-managed.”
He thus urged members of the public to report any suspicious activity to the police for further investigation.
