“A UN helicopter indeed undertook a mission to Banki & has since returned to Maiduguri. “One would have expected that, in line with the ethics of journalism, the more deliberate effort would have been made to verify the story by contacting relevant authorities before going to press, rather than propagating fake news.”

It however said, more details emerged last night disclosing that the UNHAS helicopter had issues shortly after take-off from Banki to Maiduguri and had to make an emergency landing. ‘Banki military arrived the scene to provide security coverage while the team conducted emergency repair and the helicopter eventually flew back to Maiduguri Around 11 am 17 Nov 2020″.
