murtala nyakoGovernor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa State has cleared the air surrounding reports that his convoy was attacked on Friday during his visit to Shuwa in Madagali Local Government Area of the State.

There were reports in the media yesterday that the governor’s convoy took ‘friendly fire’, while others said he escaped an attack by Boko Haram insurgents.

Nyako was in Shuwa to commiserate with the people over gunmen’s attack in the area on Wednesday night.

According to him, “After addressing the villagers, some soldiers approached me as I was about to enter my car and said that Boko Haram members were coming.

“The soldiers were shouting: they are here, they are here. So, I asked them: who? They said boko haram members are around.

“After that, one of the soldiers started shooting. So, the first thing we need to do naturally is to get out of the scene”.

It was learnt that four shots were fired into the air by the soldier, prompting the governor’s security details to take vantage position while others drove off with him to safety.

The ensuing confusion forced the villagers to run in different directions for safety.

On the entourage of the governor were the Speaker of the legislature, Alhaji Ahmadu Fintiri, Commissioner of Police, Mr John Abakasangha, Secretary to the Government, Chief Kobis Thimnu, and some commissioners.
