The Chairman Senate Committee on Army, representing Borno South in the red chamber of the National Assembly, Hon Mohammed Ali Ndume, said there was no any attack at the Police Training School in Gwoza local government of the state.

He said that the alleged report in the media, that scores of police officers were abducted after Boko Haram members overran the Police Training School in Limankara village about 20km from the main Gwoza Town is fake news.

His words, “It is not true that some police officers were kidnapped in Limankara, In fact, there are no policemen in Limankara, we only have military troops/battalion in Limankara who are up and doing, and there is no attack of such nature. I will describe the reports as untrue and baseless.

Ndume, who hails from Gwoza, as alleged and reported in the media said if there was such, he would be in the know as his people would have called to inform him.

“The troops in Limankara are not only stationed in one place, but we also have them at the deserted Police Mobile Training School, some hills around those axes with sophisticated surveillance cameras and equipment to spot terrorist movement.

“So as far as I am concerned and as the Chairman Senate Committee on Army who is privileged to have security information all over the country, Limankara community and other surrounding villages are calm and peaceful with Military Battalion stationed at strategic places who have been crushing fleeing Boko Haram insurgents crossing from Sambisa Forest to the Mandara mountains of Cameroun on daily basis,” he said .
