Akali Baba Usman, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), on Saturday said the issued terror alert by the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States (US) is false.
Usman appealed to members of the public to always bring relevant information to the police before making it known to public.
The IGP disclosed this while inaugurating a modern police station and barracks in Ibusa, Oshimili North Local Government Area of Delta State.
He said; “How can you entered the country and said there is security alert, you didn’t inform police, and you go around telling your people don’t go to Abuja, return from Abuja.
“When you have information on security, it is proper to inform the police and we will find way to tackle it, instead of taking it to the public.
“I am urging media not to help them spread such information. We are working in synergy with other security agencies to ensure the safety of residents”
The IGP urged the community to take ownership of the projects, noting that they were built with public money and they should protect it.
Usman urged the members of the community not to vandalize the edifice when having issue with the police.

The IGP noted that the station has a CCTV camera that can cover at least 2km.
