Gov Gaidam Denies Reports Of Another Attack On Damaturu

The governor of Yobe State, Ibrahim Gaidam, has refuted reports that Damaturu the state capital, was attacked Wednesday by members of the Boko Haram terrorist group, saying the reports to that effect were totally false and unfounded.

    Governor Gaidam in a pressed statement on Thursday, said there was no attack or incident that threatened security in Damaturu on Wednesday and that normalcy had returned to the town after last Monday’s attack.

    The statement which was signed by his special adviser on press affairs and Information, Abdullahi Bego, said following the successful operation which repelled the Boko Haram attacks on Damaturu on Monday, the security situation has steadily improved in the state capital.

    “Reports of another attack on the State capital should therefore be totally discountenanced as unfounded,” the governor said.

    The governor also called on residents of the state, particularly Damaturu, to remain vigilant and to continue to cooperate with and support security agents in their efforts to restore peace and security to the town.
