The CP said: “Intelligence reports at our disposal show that these so-called traders are using religion to perpetuate their acts.

“Some patriotic Nigerians, came to us from Bebeji, Wudil and some other areas, reporting that some people are hiding under the guise of reading the Quran in the names of prayers, and already we have sent our men and dispersed them.

“These faceless groups are planning to send negative messages through the social media and traditional media against the police and they are putting pressure to achieve their bad intentions.”
