Fake News Can Break Nigeria Faster Than Terrorism – FG

The Federal Government of Nigeria has said that false reports have the capacity to dismember the country faster than terrorism.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, who made the assertion on Tuesday in Abuja, argued that fake news was worse than terrorism.

The minister who spoke at a seminar held at the National Defence College, further submitted ‎that fabricated and unsubstantiated reports could trigger-off religious and ethnic strife.

While laying the blame squarely on the doorstep of the social media, Mohammed maintained that the conundrum “is so serious that it threatened to break the country rapidly even more than insurgency.”
