*Frowns at Radio Continental report on alleged insurgents’ fresh siege

Yobe State Governor, Alhaji Ibrahim Gaidam, on Thursday reaffirmed that normalcy has returned to the state capital, Damaturu after last Monday’s attack on the town, insisting that there was no other siege on the town ever since.

Reacting to news report by a Lagos based radio station, “Radio Continental”, which was culled by few online news media that Damaturu was attacked on Wednesday by the Boko Haram insurgents, Gaidam said: “This report is totally false and unfounded. There was no attack or incident that threatened security in Damaturu on Wednesday.”

The governor in a press statement by his Special Adviser on Press Affairs and Information, Mallam Abdullahi Bego, said: “Following the successful security operation which repelled Boko Haram attacks on Damaturu last Monday, the security situation has steadily improved in the State Capital, with residents going about their normal businesses all day Wednesday.

“There were reports that local residents in a village called ‘Garin Itace’ on the Damaturu-Gujba highway had sighted some people thought to be Boko Haram members and this was promptly reported to security agencies who immediately deployed air force jets which carried out a successful operation in the area.”

He said: “Reports of another attack on the State capital should therefore be totally discountenanced as unfounded.”
The governor called on residents of the state, particularly Damaturu, to remain vigilant and to continue to cooperate with and support security agents in their effort at restoring peace and security.
