Boko Haram

The Army has dismissed rumours of Boko Haram planned attacks on Maiduguri and its environs.

Deputy Director Army Public Relation Col. Ado Isa in a statement attributed the rumours to some mischievous elements.

He assured the public of Army’s commitment to protect lives and property in Maiduguri and its environ.

The statement said: “Information on the social media showed that some mischievous elements are insinuating and peddling rumours of terrorists’ plan to unleash attacks on some selected populated areas and key facilities in Maiduguri town and neighbouring areas, in order to cause panic and inflict injuries on Nigerians.

“The headquarters of Theatre Command, Operation Lafiya Dole, assures the public that measures have been put in place to checkmate the purported evil plans of the criminals.

“Accordingly, troops have been ordered to ensure that movements and activities of the marauders are thwarted. Troops are also in staging positions in line with the Super Camp concept to attack the bandits whenever they are seen.

“The public are urged to disregard the rumour of ‘deadly attacks’ on Maiduguri and its environs. The fake news is circulated by mischievous elements and other collaborators of the criminals to instil fear and panic in people and sabotage the efforts of the military and other security agencies in the struggle to end the menace.”

“The public are, therefore, enjoined to disregard the alleged attacks on Maiduguri and its environs and go about their activities without fear or hindrance.”
