The Federal Government has announced that it will set up a  crisis communication centre to counter Boko Haram’s propaganda.

This was revealed to newsmen, by the Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo, while receiving the US Special Envoy on Counter Terrorism Communication, Rashad Hussain.

Osinbajo said “For some strange reasons, something that appears so completely mindless and almost insane gains currency in a way that gets regular recruits.”

He added that “It would have been understandable if the campaign of the terrorists preaches better life, equity and such other lofty ideas.”

“But when the narratives of the insurgents have no such hope, it is intriguing that the message gains any currency,” Osinbajo said.
