Lagosians need to take their minds off the reports of a bomb blast and go about their businesses peacefully.

There have been reports on social media about an explosion and some fighting between rival groups in Oshodi.

But the spokesman of the Police Command, Olarinde Famous-Cole said in a statement on Saturday that the report is absolutely false.

“We would like to allay the fears of the general public with regards to the falsehood being circulated on the social media in respect of security situation at Mafoluku-Oshodi and environs.

“Oshodi is relatively calm and not boiling as being erroneously peddled. It is mischief and callousness to put people in fear.

“Video footage being circulated to back the false information is that of the bomb incident around Banex Plaza, Abuja in 2014.

“The Lagos State Police Command avail this opportunity to reassure members of the public that we will continue to work in partnership with the good people of Lagos and other Security Agencies to ensure safety and security of lives and properties", he explained.
