The government of Niger has arrested a journalist, Moussa Tchangari for allegedly collaborating with Boko Haram men. The rights activist who is known for his outspoken criticism of the humanitarian crisis in southeastern Niger is said to be spreading false news against the government, reports say.

According to the Interior minister Hassoumi Massaoudou, AFP reports that Tchangari was arrested for spreading propaganda.

This man has been collaborating with Boko Haram for some time, and he is actively spreading propaganda and false news in liaison with Boko Haram. All his propaganda aims to show… that Niger’s defence and security forces are the criminals… (and) not Boko Haram, the minister explains.

Tchangari was arrested on Monday and charged with criminal links to terrorist group. Human rights watchdog Amnesty International, has however called for the immediate release of the journalist.
