Police Debunk Story Of Attack On SGF's Hometown

The Police Command in Adamawa has denied an online report that Boko Haram insurgents and bandits have attacked the hometown of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha.

Deputy Superintendent of Police Sulaiman Nguroje, Police Spokesman in the state said there was no truth in the report that the people of Dana and Kwabre Villages in Dugwaba District of Hong Local Government Area had abandoned their homes as a result of alleged attacks. The SGF hails from the area.

According to Nguroje the police command has deployed anti-terrorism and anti-kidnapping squads, as well as undercover agents to the area.

He said so far there has been no report from the security operatives that the area has been attacked.

“The command received unverified information that people are fleeing from some villages as a result of alleged Boko Haram attacks.

“As security personnel, we do not play with any information that borders on insecurity.

“The command immediately deployed anti-terrorism squad and intelligence officers to the suspected areas and so far there has been no report of attack or people fleeing their villages," Nguroje said.

Also when contacted, Simon Yakubu, the District Head of Dugwaba, dismissed the online report and described it as “misleading“.

Yakubu said that people were living peacefully and celebrating Christmas in the villages mentioned in the online report.

“The report is malicious and was intended to mislead and create confusion in our communities.

“The purported report is from the enemy of peace and progress who do not want to see people living in peace and harmony with one another,“ Yakubu said.

He said reports reaching him from all the villages mentioned in the online report indicated that people were going about their businesses unmolested.
