The special assistant to the President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie has taken to her Twitter account to address Nigerians who spread fake news.
Recall that the founder of Living Faith Chapel aka Winners Chapel was recently rubbished by the media, saying that he was denied an American visa, hence got many talking.
This issue was just annulled by the United States Embassy in Abuja as they released a short article saying that Bishop Oyedepo was never denied a visa and Nigerians should help defeat the spread of fake news on his visa denial.
Also recall that Mr Adeyanju is a staunch anti-Buhari who arrested because he was mentioned in a murder case. He later told the public that he was arrested for an unjustifiable reason that is politically motivated to keep him from coming out in the next presidential election. critic of the Buhari administration, said his arrest was unjustified, politically motivated and an attempt to keep him away from the public beyond the presidential election.
The president’s aide, Lauretta Onochie deemed it fit to tell Nigerians that the world is now on red alert when it comes to the spread of fake news.
In her words :
Those who insult Nigerians with lies, are receiving international disgrace.
First, UK debunked Deji Adeyanju’s Fake News & then, America debunked a fake story by @THISDAYLIVE Thisday News
The world is now alert to the antics of those who assault Nigeria’s🇳🇬unity with Fake news.
