In a statement by the Command, report about such a threat was described as “purely a false information” concocted by disgruntled elements.
The Police urged the general public to disregard the information and remain safe, calm and be security conscious.
The statement read, “The Command is not aware of any threat letter written to any church and no church has come to lodge any complaint in relation to this.
“The trending news was concocted by disgruntle elements and enemies of the society to cause unnecessary apprehension.
“While the Command is assuring the good people of Ekiti State of adequate security in worship centres, markets, recreational centres and other public places, members of the public are implored to disregard the information, remain calm and be security conscious.
