Delta State Police Command Police has debunked viral reports which claimed that a special force has been formed to arrest youths with dreads and miniskirts in the state.
Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Bright Edafe, debunked the reports in a terse statement on his X page on Sunday.

Edafe wrote, “Members of the public particularly residents in Delta State are advised to completely disregard this.
“It is fake pls. PEACE.”
Reacting to the statement, a X user identified as GNwabudike said “I would have loved to see this work though.... It will help curb indecency in our State.”
Corroborating the spokesperson, another user: DaddyTara wrote, “My wife just talked about it and I told her its fake, and if it were to be real, there would be an uproar...”
