The description was written on the screen during a Breaking News segment on Sheriff’s emergence as PDP Chairman.

CNN describes Ali Modu Sheriff as Boko Haram Founder

Sheriff, a former governor of Borno State, has been severally linked with the sect but he denies sponsoring its activities.

The allegation has led many PDP members to reject him as the party’s chairman.

One of such members is former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode who insists that Sheriff occupies an important position in the sect.

Sheriff however claims that the sect killed his brother and that President Muhammadu Buhari would have arrested him if indeed he was a terrorist.
