Kaduna State Police Command has debunked the news making the round in some quarters that Igbo indigenes living in the state are being attacked and their properties destroyed.
The alleged attacks were said to have come as a reprisal attack following the recent clash between soldiers and members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in Abia and Rivers states.
But Kaduna State Commissioner of Police, Mr Agyole Abeh, refuted the claim during a joint meeting with Igbo and Yoruba leaders at his office in Kaduna.
He further dismissed inciting pictures and audio messages circulating in the social media on how several Igbos were allegedly killed in the state and their shops destroyed.
Meanwhile, a police sergeant was reportedly killed in clashes between suspected members of the IPOB and members of the Muslim community in Rivers State.
According to the Rivers State police commissioner, Zaki Ahmed, the dead officer was part of the team deployed to the area in the wake of the crisis. He further said that the attack left scores injured.
