Adamawa State Government has warned the public against escalating tension in the state by peddling rumours of Boko Haram attacks.
In a statement signed by Maxwell Dukku, the Press Secretary to the Governor, the government said its attention had been drawn to rumours spreading round the state and beyond, that part of Yola was under attack, a report by The News Agency of Nigeria said.
“This is mere false alarm and unfounded. The government appeals to all citizens to remain calm and go about their legitimate activities,” the statement said, adding that the government and security agencies are doing their best to ensure the peace and the safety of the people of the state.
The government however urged the people to report any suspicious movement or activity to the nearest security outpost in their locality.
All Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), including those staying with their relatives were also advised to register at the camps for proper identification and easy contact.
