Aide to President Muhammadu Buhari, Bashir Ahmad, has reacted to reports that a helicopter was shot down by Boko Haram terrorists in Borno State.
The aide had called out Daily trust newspaper for breaking the street claiming that no such thing had happened.
He’d stated that some of the media houses that had reported the story had since deleted it from their servers.
He later commented on a story from the newspaper about a helicopter not landing properly in Borno which he claimed was the true story.
Daily Trust, one of the national newspapers broke a news earlier that Boko Haram shot down a helicopter in Borno, and the story turned out to be yet another FAKE NEWS. Our media outlets have a great role to play in defeating terrorisms in any country, Nigeria included.
