on

The Nigerian Army has denied reports that Boko Haram insurgents distributed Eid donations to communities in the northern states of Borno and Yobe.

Reports alleged the terrorist group had donated food and money to residents in attempts to woo them to support its activities.

The army says the reports were “propaganda,” and that it had conducted investigations and established the reports were untrue.

The army said in a statement “our team of eagle-eyed analysts went further to critically examine the pictures attached to this malicious publication and discovered that they were simply stage-managed in a typical terrorists-styled propaganda.

Nigeria continues to experience a wave of insecurity occasioned by attacks and kidnappings carried out by Boko Haram militants.

Gov El-Rufai Sacks 99 Political Appointees

Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El Rufai has sacked over 90 of his political appointees.

The governor revealed on Thursday nights that the state government had yet to disengage any civil servant as only agencies connected to the local government system have disengaged staff.

El Rufai in his statement to reporters listed those affected to include the 23 local government councils, State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), and the Primary Health Care Board.

He said ‘’So far, 99 political appointees have lost their jobs but we have not commenced rightsizing civil servants,” adding that “we want to be fair with regards to civil servants.

El Rufai explained that the disengaged political appointees constituted 30 per cent of the total number of political office holders in the state.
