The Governor of Borno State, Babagana Zulum, has dismissed claims that the Islamic State in West African Province (ISWAP) is now answerable for the state.
ISWAP was alleged to have appointed one Abba Kaka as governor, following a newly-restructured management by an interim council.
However talking with state home correspondents after a gathering with President Muhammadu Buhari on the presidential villa, Abuja, on Monday, Zulum dismissed the declare, describing it as unfounded.
“We’re but to validate the authenticity of this report that ISWAP has appointed a governor in Borno state,” he stated.
“So, because the governor of the state, I feel it’s not proper for me to talk on one thing that I don’t have full information of. This report shouldn’t be authenticated.
