CSP Olumuyiwa Adejoti, the Acting Force Public Relations Officer, revealed this in a message on his Twitter handle on Wednesday.

The Rescue Me App was created by the police to assist residents in distress in reporting crimes in their communities while also providing immediate access to police helplines.

In a tweet, Adejobi stated that some citizens prank testing the service had sent out false emergency alerts, causing significant load on the system.

He advised Nigerians to only utilise the service when they are in true need, so that the police can assist people who are in danger.

On our NPF Rescue Me App, we want to urge Nigerians to please stop fake alerts. These are causing more harm to the system and jeopardise it. In the last 4 days, we have received more than 10,122 fake alerts,” he wrote.
