Police Launch Manhunt For Fake News Publisher In Osun

The Osun State Police Command has ordered the arrest and prosecution of individuals behind the false information in circulation declaring one Najeem Oyewumi wanted over murder.

The Command’s Spokesperson SP Opalola Yemisi Olawoyin who made the disclaimer in a statement on Friday said the press release did not emanate from the Police Command.

"The Police Command is urging the members of the public to disregard the press release in its totality.

"Also, it is pertinent to warn unscrupulous persons to desist from such act of criminality which when investigated will definitely earn them serious punishment in accordance with extant laws."
