He said that, Limankara community and other surrounding villages are calm and peaceful with Military Battalion stationed at strategic places who have been “crushing fleeing Boko Haram insurgents” crossing from Sambisa forest to the Mandara mountains of Cameroun on daily basis.

“It is not true that some police officers were kidnapped in Limankara, Infact, there are no policemen in Limankara, we only have Military troops/Battalion in Limankara who are up and doing, and there is no attack of such nature”, he added.
