Army: Reports of abduction of women by Boko Haram false

Director-Army-Public-Relation: Brig. General Usman


Nigerian Army has denied media reports that suspected Boko Haram terrorists attacked Pulka, in Borno State, Northeastern Nigeria and abducted 22 women on Friday.

“We wish to state that the report is completely false and should be ignored,” the Army said in a statement signed by Brigadier General Sani Usman, its spokesperson late Saturday.

“For the avoidance of doubt, Pulka and its environs are heavily fortified and there has not been any security breach in the area. Media houses are please requested to always cross check their facts before publishing or broadcasting,” the Army spokesperson added.
