The Kwara Police Command on Friday arrested a man alleged to be circulating `killer’ text messages to the public.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Kayode Fabode, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ilorin that the man (names withheld) was being interrogated.
Fabode urged members of the public to ignore the messages, saying there was no iota of truth in them.
The number according to the police belongs to a girl who was preaching to the suspect to accept Christ.
Fabode said that no death connected with the use of GSM calls had been reported in Ilorin or Omu-Aran by anyone.
“It is not true that people have died because they received or picked their calls on phone, particularly in Kwara,’’ he said.
According to him, the reported claims of death in Egbe, Ilorin and Omu-Aran are not true.
The text messages had created anxiety among the people in Omu-Aran and Ilorin.
