“Preliminary investigation revealed that the video clip is actually from a movie being recorded by one Encourage Gentle Onyemachi and others at George Raymond Hotel, off Ben Worsley Furniture, Ada George.

“Thus, the suicide attempt is make-believe. The Commissioner of Police is therefore using this medium to advise movie producers to notify the police whenever some sensitive scenes are being recorded to enable the latter put in place adequate measures to assuage fears and panic on members of the public.

“The media is also encouraged to verify information before publication.”
