The Anambra police command has denied the report of 19 missing riffles in the state.

On Monday, there was a report about the disappearance of guns donated to the local vigilante security team in the Awada community in the Idemili north LGA of the state.

In a statement on Wednesday, Tochukwu Ikenga, the police spokesperson in Anambra, said the report was made to “cause tension in the state”.

“Anambra state police frowns at a publication titled ‘Fear in Anambra Community Over Missing 19 Rifles’ and describes the report as a publication to promote personal agenda and seek attention,” the statement reads.


“The command notes the unprofessional attitude of some media persons who deliberately published stories to achieve a selfish interest, especially without recourse to the authority’s concern.

He noted that the command has yet to receive any reports about missing guns, adding that efforts are being made to investigate the claim.

He assured the public of the command’s commitment to maintaining law and order in the state.


“It is disheartening that, when you go through the report, it is clear that a case of such magnitude was not reported to any security agency or any concerned authority,” Ikenga said.

“Therefore, the command sees it as information targeted to cause tension in the state, to promote a rift between two groups, and to further personal agenda but it will be investigated.
