Written by on April 5, 2022

Katsina State has debunked reports in some sections of mainstream and social media that Akwa Ibom evacuated 38 of its indigenes over security concerns.

Alhaji Al’amin Isah, Acting Director-General, Media, Katsina State, told newsmen that insecurity had not reached the level that other states would be evacuating their indigenes from Katsina State.

He said the attention of Katsina State government had been drawn to the report, especially in a national newspaper and on a broadcast channel.

In his remarks, Alhaji Ibrahim Ahmad-Katsina, Special Assistant to Gov. Aminu Masari on Security Matters, said Katsina State government had contacted the leadership of non-indigenous people in the state on the issue.

Ahmad-Katsina said the non-indigenous peoples’ leadership had confirmed to the state government that it was all a ruse.

The governor’s aide called Akwa Ibom to take note of the development, so that unscrupulous people would not take advantage of situations.
