Videos and Images of alleged killing of soldiers in Metele doctored by terrorists – Army
THE Nigerian Army has said pictures and videos of alleged killings of military personnel by Boko Haram terrorists trending online were doctored propaganda materials by the terrorists.
This was even as it threatens legal action against media platforms circulating the documents, saying it would henceforth not spare individuals or groups who deliberately spread fake news that aimed to undermine national security.
The army,in an unsigned statement posted on its Facebook wall late yesterday,insisted that “the videos and images making rounds as the purported attack on Metele base are false and do not in any way portray the reality of the situation on the ground.”
But when you start using FAKE photos you unwittingly help with Boko Haram propaganda. pic.twitter.com/r34BWSnT3d

Watch and listen to their frustration.
