Presidency Denies Plan To Start Paying Repentant Boko Haram Members N150k Monthly 1

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

However, Bashir Ahmad, the Personal Assistant on New Media to President Muhammadu Buhari, described the report as fake news, adding that it should be disregarded.

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”

KanyiDaily recalls that a member of a Presidential Committee had claimed that Boko Haram fighters receive daily payments of $3,000 daily, while Nigerian military gets N1000 per day for being in the North East, at the war front.

But the Nigerian Army described the claim as “pure lie and highly irresponsible comment coming from a supposedly knowledgeable person of his calibre.”
