The Nigerian army has denied reports that 25 soldiers were killed in an attack coordinated by Boko Haram insurgents in Borno state.

Reuters had reported how the insurgent group attacked the soldiers on Saturday morning while they were evacuating people from villages in the state.

The fighters were said to have opened fire on the soldiers and the villagers who were reportedly occupying about 50 vehicles.

Sagir Musa, the director, army public relations (PRO), however, issued the denial in a statement sent to NAN in Maiduguri on Sunday.

Musa dismissed the report as “rumour and fake”.

“Contrary to rumour and fake news circulating, there was no attack on any of our troops’ locations at Sabon Gari or any other locations in Borno State,” he said.

“I have spoken with the Special Force Commander in Damboa and he confirmed to me that there was nothing of such in Damboa or any of his locations as at Friday) and Saturday.”
