Authorities of the Nigerian Army have debunked reports of attack on soldiers and capturing of military vehicles by Boko Haram in Bama local government area of Borno State.

The Army said that the report is not only untrue but also misleading as the said report was blown out of proportion by the media.

A statement signed by the Director of Army Public Relations (DAPR) Brigadier General Texas Chukwu, the Nigerian Army urged members of the public particularly residents of the North East to disregard the report as their safety is guaranteed.

He said about 22 members of Boko Haram terrorists were neutralised while several others escaped with gunshot wounds adding that efforts are being intensified by the troops to get the fleeing members of the Boko Haram terrorists.

Chukwu said one officer and a soldier sustained injuries and is currently receiving medical attention at the military medical facility.

“While the Nigerian Army would not join issues with the media, certain facts must be reported with caution particularly now that numerous successes have been recorded by the troops in the fight against insurgency.

“Members of the public are hereby advised to disregard the report and go about their legitimate businesses as the Nigerian Army is on top of the situation,” the statement assured.
