Nigerian media helping Boko Haram, bandits succeed: COAS

The Chief of Army Staff, Faruk Yahaya, on Thursday said media reporting of the activities of bandits and Boko Haram terrorists contribute to their victory.

“Insurgents and bandits thrive on the publicity they get from a section of the media,” Mr Yahaya said.

Mr Yahaya disclosed this in a statement by Nigerian Army spokesperson, Onyeama Nwachuku, adding that “if their (insurgents) activities are denied media publicity, fifty percent of the military’s job would have been done.”

Mr Faruk further said that the “expectations of the NA are that the media will continue to support the efforts of the military, as part of their patriotic duty, by giving publicity to troops’ operations, which he said, will undoubtedly shore up troops’ morale and fighting will.”
