No fewer than  500 troops have been deployed to the North-East to reinforce personnel on ground to flush out insurgents from some communities in the area.

Coordinator, National Information Centre, Mr. Mike Omeri, made the disclosure on Thursday in Abuja while giving update on security in the area.

He vowed that the troops would soon flush out insurgents from Gulak, Michika and Kunchinga and other communities in Adamawa, where they currently hold sway.

“As part of efforts being made to check the incursion and Boko Haram challenge, the military has continued to reinforce its presence in several challenged communities in the North-East.

“Military authorities have confirmed the renewed deployment of more than 500 troops to support the expedition around that area.

“We believe that with this commitment and the additional deployment, the situation will be brought under control,” he said.

Omeri said that contrary to media reports, the insurgents did not seize Mubi, adding that “situation report indicates that Mubi town is calm.”

He said that troops including the police and other services were patrolling the town to guard against any untoward incident.
