The police in Niger State have arrested two people for allegedly misinforming the command to raid the All Progressives Congress (APC) Situation Room.
We gathered that the police received a fake information that some persons were found in a building at Bosso Estate thumbprinting ballot papers towards the forthcoming gubernatorial election in the state.
It learnt that the said building is the situation room of the APC and the information was given by a brother of a stalwart of an opposition party which led the Bosso police divisional head to storm the building.
While confirming the development, the police public relations officer Wasiu Abiodun said based on the information received a “police patrol team led by DPO Bosso Division mobilised to the area and the informant led the police to the building.
“Unfortunately, on entering the building and based on preliminary investigation, it was discovered that the information was untrue,” Abiosun said.
Consequently, he said “the informant who was identified as Engr Ndagi and one other were arrested for giving false information and attempt to cause breach of peace at the scene”.
He said the suspects had been transferred to SCID for further investigation.
