Rescue Me App: Police receive over 10,000 fake alerts in four days – Force Spokesperson

The Nigerian Police Force has lamented receiving over 10,000 fake alerts in four days on its newly developed citizens app, ‘Rescue Me’.

 

Force spokesperson, Mr. Muyiwa Adejobi, stated this via his Twitter handle on Thursday, urging Nigerian to stop the fake alert.

The app which was introduced to aid the timely arrival of officers at crime scenes had been spammed with fake alerts. 

The application was designed to improve the response time of police officers to emergency situations in real-time.

“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 four days, we have received more than 10,122 fake alerts.”

“And that’s why we have heavy traffic on the system, thereby affecting the genuine callers. We have more than 5,000 pending or awaiting OTP to proceed on the app; it’s due to this unnecessary heavy traffic on the system. We are sure the app is good, efficient and helpful;”

“That’s why we initiated it to improve our security network. Pls, cooperate with us on this. Thanks,” the PRO said.
