Presidential aide, Bashir Ahmad, has said that the report that Boko Haram terrorists shot down a helicopter in Borno State is fake news.
The report had said that five persons died in the attack which took place at Banki, a town located in Bama local government area of Borno State.
Reacting to the report, Bashir Ahmad tweeted:
“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.”
