Fact Check: Viral Drone Video Of Bandits Is From Kenya, Not Nigeria by kirajustice: 12:21pm On Apr 08

A drone footage of some armed Individuals in a forest alleged to be Bandits went viral on Social Media earlier this week.

The footage, said to be of bandits enjoying themselves in a forest in Northern Nigeria, was massively distributed across different online platforms in the wake of a Deadly train attack in Kaduna.

The led to massive criticisms of the Federal Government and it's efforts to tackle Insecurity in the region.

However, in our pursuit for truth, POLITICS NIGERIA launched an investigation into the origin of the video and here is what we found.

CLAIM: The video was first appeared on Twitter via the handle of one Jackson Ude, a critic and publisher. The tweet which has now been deleted appeared on this link:

https://twitter.com/jacksonpbn/status/1511077203559206921

The video was also republished by AF News on its official handle;

https://twitter.com/AFNewsNG/status/1511214659856220161

It was also redistributed by lots of people on social media;

VERIFICATION: Upon investigating the origins of this footage, this newspaper was able to discover that the footage was taken in Kenya.

The drone which belongs to the country's General Service Unit(GSU) captured armed cattle rustlers hiding in a thicket with stolen livestock. This was in a location called Pokot County.

The Bandits had been terrorising residents of the area and its neighbouring Lakipia, Baringo and Samburu counties. The criminals also attempted to shoot down the drone but were unsuccessful.

VERDICT: Claims/reports that the drone footage was taken in Nigeria are FALSE

So if ordinary Kenya can get drone pictures of bandits/terrorists, what is keeping Nigeria from doing the needful and saving hundreds of life that get wasted on a regular basis?
...when you try so hard to extricate yourself from failure and end up making yourself a bigger failure. Everyone already knows that this government is sympathetic to terrorists, so why don't you just pretend like the video never circulated. Nigerians are so forgetful that they would soon forget about it like they already did up until now.

Terrorists are taking over many countries of Africa and this can be linked to the heavy presence of heavy weapons dropped by the Europeans during the Somalia and Libya conflict. It has led to violent conflicts across Africa, Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Mali, Ivory Coast, Bukina Faso, Niger, Chad Nigeria and Cameroon.

Lai Mohammed na saint compared to some of our people, they just never get the opportunity.

You don't have to lie to make your point especially when dealing with legit issues like banditry, unrest among others. Lack of integrity waters down genuine agitations, it makes people doubt you even when your report or concern is true.
