It was earlier reported that four local government areas of Bauchi State government that share a border with Geidam, Yobe state have been stormed by the Boko Haram fighters.
Commissioner, Budget and Economic Planning, Bauchi State, Dr. Aminu Gamawa refuted the claims as he took to his twitter page to set the records straight and explain what really happened.
Fake News Alert: The security meeting held today in Bauchi discussed the issue of IDPs from Gaidam, Yobe State. The state pledged to support them. There was no mention of BH presence or attack in Bauchi. We are just taking proactive measures to improve security in some LGAs.
It is irresponsible to report on security issues without doing a fact check. The security agencies and government officials who attended the media briefing were shocked to read the media coverage. We will continue to work and pray for security in our country.
… sparked some reactions from concerned fans who slid under the comment section and reacted. Below are some of the reactions:
@UmarGombe: This happens only here a verified handle publishing fake news
@aminu3214: God help us with our media. First claim govt officials don’t talk to them. However when they’re briefed a completely different story emerges from what was said….3
@eduardo_ethan8: After spreading fake news, they have apologized. What should be done to these Fake news Merchants?
@yusdgyd1: You need to have effective media management team to monitor and ensure all news going out are authentic and verified, so as to avoid such clash with facts about your Govt efforts. I read many of these lies, few hrs ago.
@MusaAbu59568640: Yes Dr. Wani lokacin gidajen yada labarai basu fahimtar maga wallahi, ita gwamnatin Jahr Bauchi ba wannan furuchin tayi ba, amma mutane da kafafen yada lbre suka juya maganar. Fatan mu dai Allah ya yaye mana wannan fasifa amin
@AHMADUDAHIRU2: You may need to sue the newspaper starting and spreading the fake news if you are saying the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
