In a statement issued in Yola, he described the report which was published by a foreign media as total falsehood, lamenting that it was very unfortunate for someone out of mis­chief to publicise a false in order to cause pandemonium in the polity.

“This is false, malicious and regrettable. Those who supplied the radio journalist the information did so out of sheer wickedness and mischief,” Sajoh said.

He said himself and other government officials went to Koma on facts-finding mission to as­certain the report, adding that they held meeting with highly placed people in the area who told them nothing of sort happened in the area.  

“There was a meeting at the palace of the Dis­trict Head of Koma where the seven village heads, imams, pastors and com­munity leaders expressed shock at the news of kill­ings in their localities. At the end of the meet­ing, the district head of Chomcha spoke to journal­ists asserting that nothing of the sort took place in the area” he said.

Sajoh, however, urged residents to be cautious of people that give false information to newsmen and also to be watchful and security conscious. He warned those responsible for the false information to desist from such act as it is capable of causing unrest in the state.

Meanwhile there were reports yesterday that 18 people were killed in Koma district of the state during clash between insurgents members.
