The Police in Adamawa State, on Monday, denied report that Boko Haram insurgents and bandits attacked the home town of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr Boss Mustapha.
DSP Sulaiman Nguroje, Police Spokesman in the State said there was no truth in the report that the people of Dabna and Kwabre Villages in Dugwaba District of Hong Local Government Area had abandoned their homes as a result of alleged attacks.
Nguroje told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the police command had 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 told NAN.
