FG rejects appointment of new Boko Haram leader

The Federal Government of Nigeria has rejected the alleged appointment of a new Boko Haram leader, describing it as a cheap propaganda, reports ITRealms.

Reports have it that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has appointed a new leader for Boko Haram in the name of Abu Musab Al-Barnawi.

Reacting to the announcement, the Federal Government through the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, dismissed the appointment, saying it is too late to employ such tactics to revive the defeated Nigerian terrorist organization.

He told members of the Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE) attending the 2016 Annual Conference of Editors (ANEC) in Port Harcourt, on Thursday during the opening ceremony.

''By the way, don't believe the cheap propaganda by the global terrorist group ISIS, which has reportedly named a new leader for Boko Haram. Our gallant military has put Boko Haram on the run and nothing will bring back the terrorists, not even the wishful thinking by ISIS,'' the Minister said in his remarks at the ongoing All Nigerian.

According to reports, ISIS, to which Boko Haram is affiliated, has named Abu Musab Al-Barnawi as the new leader of Boko Haram.

He also urged Nigerians to remain vigilant and reach out to the security agencies if they suspect any security breach in their environment.
