The Nigerian military has denied declaring the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) a terrorist organisation. Tukur Buratai, chief of army staff, made the disclosure at the official launch of Operation Python Dance II in Abakaliki on Monday evening. According to the army chief, the defence headquarters (DHQ) did not declare IPOB a terrorist organization, but only made a “pronouncement”, which he says gave room for “the right step to be taken”.
Reno Omokri, former Special Adviser on New Media to ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan, has told Lai Mohammed to act more like a Minister of Information, and stop spreading propaganda. Omokri was reacting to comments credited to the minister, who claimed that the people opposed to the All Progressive Congress, APC, were sponsoring the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
In a bid to finally nail the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), President Muhammadu Buhari has signed a presidential proclamation to officially proscribe the secessionist group. As reported by ThisDay, the Office of the Attorney General of the Federation confirmed the presidential declaration. According to the national newspaper, the president signed the proclamation on Sunday before his departure for New York, for the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly, UNGA 72.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
