Terrorists firing on our office, fake news – PPRO, Zone one
The Nigeria Police in Kano has described as baseless, untrue and fake, news of gunshots by suspected terrorists in their Office.
The Spokesman of Zone 1, in the Command, SP Abubakar Ambursa, said, “to say that there was an attack on the zone by suspected Terrorists is nothing but concocted lies by some disgruntled elements”.
“I have been in the office since 9am this morning and there was no report whatsoever from the gates of the zone that some persons fired gunshots”.
“Don’t forget there is a Friday Mosque in the zone and as at the time they said some terrorists fired the shots it was time for Prayers because we did our prayers by 1pm, so I cannot comprehend where the story is coming from”.
“When you talk to me about the possible incident, I went to the Gates and enquired and no report of such and our Police teams searched those from outsiders who attend Jummah Prayers.
”They were stationed at the gate; nobody said he heard any gunshots”.
Reports had it that suspected members of Boko Haram terrorist group fired shots at Zone 1 Police Headquarters along BUK Road in Kano.
According to security sources, the terrorists came in three vehicles around 12:30pm on Friday and fired several shots at the building and then zoomed off.
The source said security is being reinforced around the headquarters to frustrate possible attacks by the terrorists.
