The news was disxovered to be Fake news by the state government and The Cable news

Abubakar Bello, governor of Niger, has debunked a purported video of Boko haram members converting residents of the state to Islam.

In the viral video, many residents especially women could be seen gathered in what appeared to be a remote location.

Femi Fani-Kayode, a former minister of aviation, shared it to his 970,000 followers on Twitter and wrote: “Boko Haram and ISWA forcefully converting people to Islam in the parts of Niger state that they have captured, conquered, occupied and flown their flag.”

Bello, however, disproved the claim, saying the video is not from Nigeria.

TheCable also found that it emanated from Kolia, a town in Ivory Coast.

The Governor Said: “This widely shared video on social media is totally misleading and the work of those who wish to see the country up in flames. This video is an old video that does NOT even originate from Nigeria, talk more of Niger State.

“As citizens, we should rather use our vantage position to complement the peace efforts of the government than spread fake news, cause disunity, raise unnecessary alarm capable of causing disaffection among the peace-loving people of Niger State and Nigeria at large.”

The viral video surfaced days after Boko Haram insurgents reportedly hoisted their flag in a community in Niger after sacking residents.

I disbelieve this government with all of my mind. This is the most dangerous government since October 1, 1960. Whatever they deny, comes out to be true.

The video might not be from Nigeria but we cannot deny the fact that such an incident has happened and is still happening in Nigeria.

I won’t be surprised if Boko Haram releases video proof of them converting Christians

You see am?

I don't know why we are yet to regulate Social media.

In saner climes, people like FFK should be in curves by now..but this is Nigeria, where the president takes nothing seriously until it metamorphoses into something else

how can you prove it happened in Niger state? Some of you don't know the implications of what you post online. You will look back someday and regret your actions aswearugad

If your Lord and saviour Buhari didn't regret releasing captured Boko Haram killers and treating them to a sumptuous dinner and all expense paid trip abroad then why should I?

Yes Boko is in Niger

But posting unrelated videos and labelling it as being from Niger state is not right and distracts from the crisis in niger

Plus look at the corner of the video. See the tiktok logo? Does boko look like the kind of people that would maintain a tiktok account?

Twitter banned Trump for sharing fake news, even though he's a public figure. Can't they do the same to this man? He's really really not helping when it comes to knowing what's actually happening in Nigeria.

DON'T BELIEVE THE LIES OF THE NIGER STATE GOVERNOR!

THE TOWN OF KOLIO IN THE IVORY COAST HAS NEVER BEEN UNDER ANY ISLAMIC INSURGENCY!

CHRISTIANS WAKE UP AND DON'T ALLOW YOURSELVES TO BE DECEIVED BY THESE NATURAL BORN LIARS!

ok What exactly is the difference ?Maybe the governor should ask how is forefathers became Muslims, was it not through a jihad ?this your religion grows by blood and force. I won't even be surprised it is the governor's village. But no matter how hard you try, the word of God cannot be broken, "the gates of hell shall no prevail.
