The Federal Government has insisted that news making the rounds that Boko Haram abductee, Leah Sharibu has died in captivity are nothing but peddled rumors.
Addressing journalists during a Press Conference, Minister of Information & Culture Lai Mohammed described the Leah Sharibu news as nothing but “fake news”. He further blamed the opposition party for spreading the news in a bid to tarnish the Buhari-led administration ahead of the polls this weekend.
I think it’s part of the opposition’s strategies to throw everything at the administration and at the President. I think every day they are realizing the hopelessness of their position.
Every day they are amazed by the support Mr. President is receiving from every part of the country and they have decided that they are going to spread falsehood, inflame passion and make this election a Muslim-Christian affair or North-South affair, but people are not listening to them.
