Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has called for the regulation of social media in Nigeria following reports of him being caught up in an attack on the Kaduna-Abuja train.
In an interview with Channels Television on Monday, the former governor again denied that himself and other people were involved in the shooting.
“This so-called social media, the earlier they start regulating it, the better.
“We either start regulating this or there are people who deliberately want to bring down the government, and I don’t know what they want to achieve by that, is it that the government can’t protect its own minister?
“Most of these stories we hear are not true, they had earlier on said there was an attack on passengers on the same Rigasa, I had to tell NRC to make a rejoinder because there was none.”
AN24.net reported earlier that Bring Back Our Girls Convener, Aisha Yesufu accused the minister of lying about the attack and claimed that her relatives were on the attacked train.
