"We now have scientific measures to tackle anti-government, anti-military information"- Maj- Gen. John Enenche

The power of social media is so strong that it can destroy someone's life and it can shape it in a positive way too, that's why the Director of Defence Information, Major-General John Enenche is on watch out to capture any anti-government, and anti-military information.


In an interview with channels TV, He said the activities of Nigerians on social media are now being monitored for hate speech, anti-government and anti-security information by the military.

"Imagine when the President came back and addressed the nation, not up to 30 minutes later, a fake speech of the Commander-In-Chief was being circulated in order to do what? To derail the people. If you are not very sharp and if you didn’t listen to the speech or you don’t have a copy of it like I had it almost immediately, you wouldn’t know. So, looking at it from that perspective, it is a challenge everywhere. 

"What are we doing? In the military, we are now taking on it more seriously than ever. We have our strategic media centres that monitor the social media to be able to sieve out and react to all the ones that will be anti-government, be anti-military and be anti-security.

"We tackle them appropriately with appropriate responses. Ahead of that, we are also proactive. We have measures in place, scientific measures to be able to sieve this information and also to get the public and let them know that some of this information they are getting is not genuine are not true and their objective is an anti-corporate existence of this country.
