SaharaReporters learnt that the CIFIPN Bill 2021 was passed into law, after it was read for the third time.

It was gathered that the bill was first introduced by the eighth assembly, which had control from 2015 to 2019, but it could not pass the anti-corruption bill, because of the delay in the presidential assent.

According to the CIFIPN President, the law would produce “professionals in the usage of Forensic Science and technological tools in the investigation of frauds.”

The command’s spokesman was reacting to the rumour that went viral in Umuahia on Monday night that killer herdsmen had invaded the capital city and its adjoining villages and were ready to attack the people.

The report sparked fear among residents, with many making midnight telephone calls and short messages to friends and relatives, urging them to be alert and vigilant.
