“Our attention has been drawn to the above story on ‘the release of the mastermind of the 2011 bomb blast that occurred in Madalla, Niger state’ purportedly credited to our station AIT,” the management said.

“We hereby emphatically dissociate our organisation from the report. It is indeed fake news. Our station never reported such a news item.”

Igbere TV recall that Dikko was convicted by a Federal High Court in Abuja in 2013 and sentenced to life imprisonment for planning an attack on St. Theresa Catholic Church, Madalla, Niger.

The car bomb attack left about 40 people dead on Christmas Day.
