And its also a big problem globally. So if the police have a medium, see it that you have a station that you can listen to, for only that which is right, correct and true. It cannot be said that the police radio is broadcasting fake news. It will not happen and this is a big challenge that will face the operators.READ ALSO:Garba Shehu under fire over comments on Service ChiefsWhen people listen to other radio stations, they will tune to the police radio in order to confirm what they have listened to elsewhere.There will be no defamation, libel or fake news.
