Bauchi state orientation camp not bombed - NEMA

There has been a wide spread rumour about a bomb explosion in Bauchi state orientation camp in Wailo since Wednesday morning killing about 50 corps members.

However, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has dismissed romours that there was a bomb blast in the orientation camp.

According to a short message from NEMA spokesman Yushua Shuaibu,    “NEMA wishes to inform the public that there wasn’t any explosion in Bauchi today as has been speculated,” he said

Also, Bauchi State Government has denied rumours.

A statement from the Governor’s Office, signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Ishola Michael Adeyemi, described the rumour as “baseless, unfounded and an information that cannot be substantiated by the mongers who are bent on disrupting the peaceful atmosphere in the state.”

Mr. Adeyemi described the story as the handiwork of a few enemies of peace who want to cause unnecessary panic among the people, particularly the corps members who are visitors to the state.

“As a government we are committed to the protection of lives and properties of every law abiding citizen of the state, adequate security measures have been put in place and we are working hands in hands with all security agencies in the state and the effort is paying [off] as Bauchi State has remained peaceful in spite of the security challenges the country is facing,” he said.
