Paul Carsten calls out Facebook page claiming Atiku will give away parts of Borno to Boko Haram

Paul Carsten, a Reuters Journalist has called out a Facebook page ‘Make Nigeria Worse Again’, which claimed that Atiku will give away parts of Borno to Boko Haram for a ceasefire.

The post from the Facebook page read;

We must stop Atiku’s hellish plan to GIVE AWAY parts of Borno State and oil to Boko Haram in exchange for a cease-fire. Share this video with all your friends we MUST STOP THIS HORRIBLE PLAN!!!

However reacting to this, Paul Carsten who called out the Facebook page, disclosed that he almost believed the claims made on the page.

He wrote;

Oh wow. I got a video ad on Facebook claiming @atiku plans to give away parts of Borno and oil (what oil?) to Boko Haram in exchange for a ceasefire.

… Amazing how many replies I got thinking I believe this. Also it’s interesting, if you try and report the ad to @facebook, they didn’t have an appropriate choice for the kind of content (they had things like nudity, hate speech, fraud, impostor account, etc) – but on another ad I could select “False News” and similar.
