FORMER SARS BOSS IN RIVERS STATE, AKIN FAKOREDE DISPELS RUMOURE OF HIS DISMISSAL FROM NIGERIA POLICE
The rumour milling the round that the former Commander of the just disbanded Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS), in Rivers State, Akin Fakorede has been dismissed from the Nigeria Police Force is not true after all.
Some Facebook users in Rivers State have been posting online that Victor Fakorede, whose name and Service number: 41985 appeared on the supposed list of dismissed officers is the same person as Akin Fakorede, who served in Rivers State as SARS Commander.
The Facebook users started added the name “Akin”, shortly after we (Brave Views published the names and Service numbers of some officers who may suffer various degrees of punishment, resulting from the ongoing #EndSARS protests.
We had only published the name: Fakorede Victor, with this Service number: 41985 but the Facebook users have mischievously added the name Akin to it.
When contacted on telephone, Akin Fakorede told Brave Views that he had nothing to do with that name or any rumoured dismissal.
He described the development as a fake news.
The public is therefore strongly advised to disregard the rumoured sack of Akin Fakorede from the Nigeria Police Force.
