The Nigeria Police have insisted that none of the 2,000 personnel deployed in the North-East to fight Boko Haram insurgents absconded from a training camp as being reported.

Police force Public Relations Officer Jimoh Moshood in a statement on Wednesday reacted to the reports that 167 to 190 personnel fled from the insurgency training counter.

Moshood adds that the 2,000 policemen deployed by the Force to the North East have reported and are on ground to combat operation in the North East fighting along with the military in the front line against Boko Haram insurgency.

The Force spokesperson, however, described the reports as “untrue and absolute falsehood”, claiming they were attempts to cast aspersions on efforts by the police to fight insurgency.

The police spokesman questioned why the personnel would abscond when the Police Mobile Force (PMF) personnel have been engaged actively in the front line along with the military in the fight against Boko Haram terrorist group since the inception of the insurgency.
