A twitter account belonging to @MohammedLai earlier today claimed that President Buhari will leave Daura for the United States on Monday 4th September, to condole with President Trump over floods in Huston.

This sparked outrage and outcry from Nigerians on social media even before they realize its a parody account.

However, Minister for information and culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has distanced himself from the account saying he has neither twitter or Facebook account.


The Minister said "Fake news, disinformation and hate speech are the antics of the naysayers, those who are pathologically opposed to this Administration. That is why we are urging Nigerians to be more discerning and to double check any information emanating from the Social Media"

He also said the fake account highlights the dangers posed to the polity by the purveyors of fake news and disinformation, and vowed that the Federal Government would soon fish out those behind the shenanigans.
