Impeccable sources told Zagazola Makama that the Radio Service which will be located in KANGARWA will be a supporter of Islamic State, weekly news Propaganda summary, will be broadcast in Hausa, Arabic and Kanuri.

Zagazola Makama on Sunday its X handle said the recruitment pace of the insurgency has still not been effectively halted and online media propaganda by the terror group has continued to play a key role in ensuring that the terrorist groups remain visible.

‘’This is effectively drawn by intense propaganda moves in making effort to draw significant attention to the organization’s sustained presence and reach.
