Former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has attacked the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, for saying the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration has defeated Boko Haram.
DAILY POST reports that Lai Mohammed, while speaking with journalists after a media tour in the United States, US, explained that the present administration has defeated the terrorist group.
News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, quoted the Minister as saying that unlike the past administration, the insurgents were no longer in control of any territory, hence the declaration that they had been defeated.
Reacting through his Twitter handle on Wednesday, Omokri said the minister of Culture and Information should officially change his name to Lie Mohammed.
He, however, claimed that President Buhari today, admitted that Boko Haram still controls some territory in Nigeria.
He wrote, “Lai Mohammed should officially change his name to Lie Mohammed.
“Just 4 days ago he boasted that Boko Haram controls no territory and has been completely defeated only for his boss, President Buhari, to admit today that Boko Haram does in fact still control some territory.”
