The Nigeria Police in Kano has portrayed as baseless, untrue and fake, the news of gun firing by suspected gunmen in their Office.
The image maker of the police Zone 1, SP Abubakar Ambursa, stated that, “to say that there was an attack on the zone by suspected terrorists is nothing but concocted lies by some disgruntled elements.”
According to Ambursa, “I have been in the office since 9 am this morning and there was no report whatsoever from the gates of the zone that some persons fired gunshots.”
He added that “do not forget there is a Friday Mosque in the zone and as of the time they said some terrorists fired the shots it was time for prayers because we did our prayers by 1 pm, so I cannot comprehend where the story is coming from.”
However, the report stated that the suspected members of Boko Haram terrorist group fired shots at Zone 1 Police Headquarters along BUK Road in Kano.
It was also reported that the terrorists arrived in three vehicles around 12:30 pm on Friday and fired several shots at the station and then zoomed off.
Though a source disclosed that security is being deployed around the headquarters to counter possible attacks by the terrorists.
