Police in Central Nigeria say recent social media reports alleging a panned Jihad in Plateau State are false.

The circulated document alleging the plot was created specifically to incite violence, Police Public Relations Officer, Tyopev Terna said.

After investigations, the author was found to have used a fake Facebook account specifically for the hoax and remains faceless, an official statement from the Police spokesman said, Tuesday.

"The initiator of this inciting document opened a fake Face book Account just for this purpose which he has since closed down," the statement said.

Terna therefore warn that anyone circulating inciting documents will henceforth be arrested.
