‘People report killings as if it has never happened before’, says Garba Shehu

“I think there is a determination by some people to make security the narrative that would lead to the next elections in 2023. We are sad, we are not happy people are killing one another but the way it is being reported is to suggest to you that it has never happened.”

“The other day, I was holding a newspaper to an audience. The New Nigerian Newspaper reported the kidnapping of 20 on November 7, 1966 in the Mid-West. If something like that happens today, it will be reported as if there had never been an incident like that in the history of this country.”

“And Buhari – not any other person – not the local council chairman, or governor, Buhari is responsible. So, we know the game in town.”

— Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity
