Nigerian Army has been notified of a statement insinuating that Nigerian villages were attacked by Cameroonian ( Ambazonian) seperatists on 29 May 2022.
Contrary to the misinformation, own troops deployed at Danare received information on Sunday morning about the said attack.
The troops immediately mobilized to Bashu community, which was allegedly under attack.
On their arrival, it was revealed that Bashu was not under attack and no external incursion was recorded; rather the separatists attacked Obonyi 2 and Njasha, both of which are communities located in the Republic of Cameroon.
Four victims of the attack, who crossed over to Nigerian territory were later rescued by our troops and operatives of Nigerian Immigration Services.
The attack was therefore not within Nigerian territory as claimed.
Members of the public are enjoined to disregard the unsubstantiated information and not panic.
