In response to the message that was being spread, SPF urges members of the public to refrain from circulating unsubstantiated information as this may cause public alarm.

However, it asked members of the public to stay vigilant and to report suspicious activities/persons/items to the Police.

“We can all contribute towards SGSecure and help ensure that the safety and security of our friends and loved ones are not compromised,” it wrote.
