The Nigeria Police Command in Delta has denied that there was a clash between herdsmen and farmers in the state.

The command’s spokesman, Andrew Aniamaka, made this known in a statement made available to journalists in Warri, Delta State, on Tuesday.

Mr. Aniamaka also advised journalists to verify their facts from relevant authorities before publication.

“The attention of the command has been drawn to reports suggesting that there are clashes between herdsmen and farmers in some communities in Delta.

“The command wishes to state unequivocally that it is not aware of any herdsmen and farmers clash anywhere in the state.

“Such unfounded reports are unprofessional, misleading and capable of causing a breakdown of law and order,” he said.

Mr. Aniamaka, however, urged the public to disregard the report, and assured that the command would continue to provide adequate security of life and property.

The alleged report claimed the clash had occurred between Abraka and Obiarukwu communities in Ethiope East and Ukwani Local Government Areas, respectively last Wednesday.
