Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has reacted to report of Governor Abdullahi Suleof Nasarawa saying that Boko Haram members are regrouping in his state.
Speaking during a media briefing in Abuja, Lai Mohammed said he spoke with the governor who told him that he was misquoted by the media.
“On the statement allegedly credited to the governor of Nasarawa State, I was also concerned and took on the governor, I asked him for further explanation. The governor said it was a case of being quoted out of context.
“That what he told the media was that he went to see Mr. President, first to wish him Happy New Year, secondly to thank him for the forces he had sent to Nasarawa State to dislodge the bandits who were trying to behave like Boko Haram.
“That was how the issue of Boko Haram came about. So, it was a clear case of being quoted out of context.”
