Reports had on Thursday emerged on social media that the government was making plans to pay rehabilitated Boko Haram members N150k monthly.

Ahmad, who reacted on his Twitter page, said the report was far from the truth and Nigerians should not believe everything they read without asking the poster to provide a credible source of the story.

“FAKE NEWS ALERT: The Federal Government is NOT planning to start paying repented Boko Haram members N150,000 monthly, the story is baseless and should be regarded as the usual fake news. When you see it here or on WhatsApp, ask the poster to provide a credible source of the story”
