The Bauchi State Government has debunked the rumour of death of an individual in Wikki Warm Springs of Yankari Games Reserve, saying the reserve is safe and open to all tourists.
In a statement, Engineer Habu Mamman,
Sole Adminisrator, Yankari Game Reserve, said Wikki warm spring was not a pool but a natural warm spring suitable for swimming.
“We urge the public to disregard the rumours as they are false. We also urge the press to take note and verify stories before posting.
We have formally notified the Police and the administration of ATBU to get to the immediate and remote cause of the matter,” Mamma said.
