BREAKING! Boko Haram: No helicopter was shot down – NAF, UN

The Nigerian Air force and the United Nation Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in Nigeria has debunked the reported attack on an helicopter by Boko Haram terrorist in Borno.

This was made known in a tweet by the Spokesperson of the Nigerian Air Force, Air Commodre Ibikunle Daramola.

“It is sad that a respected media outlet like @daily_trust would publish a false, unverified report like this. No helicopter was shot down. No helicopter crashed in Borno State today. A UN helicopter indeed undertook a mission to Banki & has since returned to Maiduguri” Air Commodre Ibikunle Daramola tweeted.

“One would have expected that, in line with the ethics of journalism, @daily_trust would have made more deliberate effort to verify the story by contacting relevant authorities before going to press, rather than propagating fake news” he added.

Similarly, United Nation Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in Nigeria in a tweet, said that no helicopter was hit nor crashed in Borno.

Details shortly.
