The SGF hails from the area.

Nguroje told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that 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 told NAN.

Also when contacted, Mr Simon Yakubu, the District Head of Dugwaba, dismissed the online report and described it as a “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 doesn’t 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. (NAN)
