By EMMANUEL IRIOGBE, Abuja
Fashola who expressed his disappointment with the spread of the false information on social media platforms and has called on security agencies to take action against those responsible for spreading fake news.
In a release made available to the media by his Special Adviser on Media, Hakeem Bello, Fashola clarified that he has been away from Abuja for an extended period of time, rendering the claims entirely unfounded.
Fashola has therefore initiated the process of filing formal petitions against the offensive tweets and online reports with the management of the microblogging site, X (formerly known as Twitter), and the National Communications Commission (NCC).
He urged the relevant security agencies to treat this matter with utmost seriousness, as it strikes at the heart of judicial independence.
The former Minister believes that these allegations may be part of a wider campaign to undermine the judiciary by those who seek to manipulate the institution for their own gain. He emphasizes the importance of unmasking the perpetrators and their sponsors and ensuring that they face the appropriate legal consequences.
Mr Fashola urged members of the public to ‘disregard these false allegations and asked them to report any individuals involved in spreading such dangerous fabrications to the relevant security agencies’.
