Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has stated that there is no presence of Boko Haram in Nasarawa State.

Mohammed stated this while reacting to a statement ascribed to Nasarawa State Governor,  Abdullahi Sule which stated that Boko Haram members were regrouping in his state.

Speaking during a media briefing in Abuja, Lai Mohammed said he spoke with Governor Sule who told him that he was misquoted by the media.

According to him,

“On the statement allegedly credited to the governor of Nasarawa State, I was also concerned and took on the governor, I asked him for further explanation.

“The governor said it was a case of being quoted out of context.

“That what he told the media was that he went to see Mr. President, first to wish him Happy New Year, secondly to thank him for the forces he had sent to Nasarawa State to dislodge the bandits who were trying to behave like Boko Haram.

“That was how the issue of Boko Haram came about. So, it was a clear case of being quoted out of context.”
