Buratai implores Nigerians to stop glorifying criminals

Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai has called on Nigerian to stop glorifying and giving undue publicity to criminals and terrorists through social media and propaganda.

Col. Sagir Musa, Acting Director, Army Public Relations, in a statement on Friday, September 13, in Abuja, said that Buratai made the plea at the Headquarters of Operation Lafiya Dole in Maiduguri while visiting troops in the Northeast on Friday.

Buratai said he had noted with great concern the increased propaganda and undue publicity given to the remnants of the erstwhile Boko Haram terrorist group by some people.

He said the development had further boosted the image of the criminal gang thus assuming larger than life status.
