Minister of information, Lai Muhammed has appealed to the Nigerian media to stop promoting news that has to do with the activities of the dreaded Islamic terrorist group popularly known as Boko Haram.
Boko Haram has claimed many lives and displaced many people within the Northeast region of the country since they began their inhumane attacks.
Lai Muhammed said during his Sallah message in his home town in Ilorin on Friday, that there is a need for the media in Nigeria to show little attention to the kind of reportage they give to Boko Haram.
“The truth is that there is no resurgence of Boko Haram. Cowardly bombings and kidnappings are some of the hallmarks of an asymmetric warfare that insurgencies are.
And like I say all the time, such wars do not end by the signing of any truce. They taper off with time, as this one surely will,” he said.
“They are ensuring that never again will Boko Haram take control of our territories, attack our major cities, including Abuja, at will and fly their flag anywhere in the country.”
