Al Jazeera slip up on Emergency rule as condoms and drugs come into play
Recent reports on Al jazeera news network purportedly showing attrocities commiteted by Nigerian soldiers against civillians in States under emergency rule in Northern Nigeria have been rubbished by Defense Headquarters spokeperson.
‘Video clips on civilian casualty is fake’
“The Defence Headquarters has noted the dissemination through the channels of Aljazeera Television reports alleging massive civilian casualties in the ongoing security operations.
“It wishes to point out that the video clip being shown on the Aljazeera reports has no bearing whatsoever on the current reality in the operations areas.
“It is noted in particular that the footages being referred to as civilian casualties were actually pictures of the destruction perpetrated by the terrorists at the police stations and prisons in Bama, Borno State on 7 May 2013 when the insurgents attacked the town”.
Going by this, the loser in this blind game of cat and mouse will certainly be gullible people who are only eager to read negative reports about the professionalism being diplayed by our servicemen .
