“The confusion also led to the claim that the Governor of Adamawa State, Murtala Nyako who had visited the community was attacked by terrorists. The military authorities have refuted the claim. The troops were on assignment to block a discovered entry and exit point of terrorists into the country through the state. The community has been assured of their safety as normalcy has returned”,Olukolade said.
