Social Media and Propaganda

By Alhaji Abdullahi   U12MM1019

A few days back, the social media clique has posted the rumour that the Nigerian military will over throw the government of President Muhammadu Buhari over the current investigation of a military personal on the issue of fraud and conniving in Boko Haram.
This allegation has circulated the country and abroad,  but some reasonable Nigerians took it as a mere hearsay channeled to cause problems to the present administration as well as create fear in the mind of some office holders to comply with the demands of the Nigerian Army.
However,  one of the media aides of the president condemned the allegation against the Army stating that they were not responsible for publicising such information and that such a statement is definitely from those who want the present administration to fail.
