The Presidency yesterday disclaimed  any statement or report suggesting that  President Goodluck Jonathan  admitted  that government knows  the location of the abducted Chibok girls.

Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President , Dr. Reuben Abati, alleged  that hackers  used his email account to  issue the  statement with a view to misleading the public.

He said: “All media organisations and persons on my mailing list should kindly disregard the press release purportedly issued by me  titled: President Jonathan reveals location of Chibok girls and exposes Boko Haram masterminds.

“No such press release was written or circulated by me. It is clearly the work of fraudsters who have hacked into my email account in an odious attempt to mislead the public at the expense of the credibility of the Jonathan Administration.

“We totally condemn this criminal resort to political dirty tricks which seeks to cynically play on national concern and emotions about the Boko Haram insurgency and fate of the abducted Chibok girls.

“Aspects of the fraudulent press release, such as its incoherence and invitation to click on a  link,  would have alerted discerning persons who are conversant with the style and format  of my press statements to the possibility  of skulduggery.

“I find it necessary, however, to  issue this disclaimer for the benefit of the unwary.”
