The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) yesterday said media reports alleging planned Boko Haram attacks in western Nigeria should be disregard.
A statement by defence spokesman Colonel Rabe Abubakar said: “this story is not only baseless but lacks substance in its entirety, hence should be disregarded.  Of more worrisome is the claim that the terrorists have infiltrated the western states.”
He added that: “While the military and other security agencies have made tremendous successes in degrading and decimating the terrorists who are now in disarray having lost their centre of gravity, camps and their source of logistics.”
“It would be unthinkable to raise these unfounded rumours of Boko Haram terrorist planning attack in not only in the west but any other part of the country for that matter,” he added.
Abubakar said the coordination and synergy between the military and other security services which led to the arrest of some ring leaders of the terrorists in some states is instructive to their incapability to wage any coordinated attack.
He said: “However, the general public are requested to always be wary of suspicious individuals or groups in their localities and to report such to security agencies for prompt action as this war is Nigeria versus Boko Haram terrorists hence requires collective contribution of all Nigerians for timely ending of this terrorism.”
He said the Armed Forces is using this medium to appeal to the good citizens of Nigeria particularly in the western part of the country not to lose sleep over the unfounded and fictitious reports and to go about their normal and legitimate businesses as the DHQ and other security agencies are monitoring the situation with all seriousness.
