The Nigerian Army has debunked the news making the round about soldiers falling under the attack of Boko Haram in Bama Local Government Area of Borno State.

In a statement issued on the Twitter handle of the Nigerian Army, they admonished members of the public to disregard the media report which alleged that the Islamic sect, Boko Haram, captured military vehicles and ambushed 23 soldiers on guard. 

According to the statement; “The attention of the Nigerian Army has been drawn to news making the round alleging attack on soldiers and capturing of military vehicles by Boko Haram in Bama Local Government Area of Borno State.

“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.

“It is my well-thought-out opinion that in future, media practitioners should endeavour to verify facts from the appropriate military authority before rushing to the press.”
