The Burkinabè Minister of Foreign Affairs is the founder of Radio Omega, which the Superior Council of Communication sanctioned for "broadcasting false news" after the attack on the village of Solhan in early June. What to give grain to grind to the detractors of Alpha Barry, who are for some in his own camp.

It is two days now that Radio Omega has stopped broadcasting, forced to silence by a decision of the Superior Council of Communication (CSC). A provisional suspension, which took effect on June 9 and must continue until the 13 of the same month, the regulatory body accusing the Omega group, founded by Alpha Barry, the Burkinabè Minister of Foreign Affairs, for disseminating false information as a result of the murderous attack in the village of Solhan, on the night of June 4 to 5.

Among the grievances raised, the CSC cites the dissemination of a record higher than the official record - it stands, according to the authorities, at 132 victims -, the announcement of a return of the terrorists to the scene of the attack for seizing food and livestock or the mention of another attack, this time against the village of Dambam, 24 hours after the one that struck Solhan. Several local media (Burkina Radio and Television, l'Observateur Paalga) and international media (RFI) were also summoned to explain this Thursday, June 10.
