Public urged to help with looting info

The public is urged to come forward with information on social media posts alleging that disgruntled police personnel were seen encouraging opportunists to loot shops in the city.

The National Capital District Metropolitan, Chief Superintendent Perou N’Dranou, said this after Facebook posts claimed that police personnel allowed and actually encouraged the public to loot properties following the November 20th Parliament rampage over the late payment of their 2018 APEC security operations allowances.

N’Dranou said he wants the public to provide information so that he can deal with the matter.

“There are a lot of false rumours being spread over social media and so it is very important to substantiate this claim,” N’Dranou said, adding that if true, those policemen responsible will be identified and disciplined.
