Nigerians React As Fashola Petitions IGP Over “Fake News”

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The petition issued by former minister of works and housing, Babatunde Fashola, to the Inspector General of Police over defamatory social media posts has sparked social media reactions.

The African Examiner writes that recently, a journalist, Jackson Ude and some Twitter users alleged that the former Lagos State governor is drafting a favourable judgment for the presidential election petition tribunal.

Fashola reacting to the claim that he and some lawyers of the All Progressives Congress (APC) were writing the judgment which would be handed to the judges described the allegation as “baseless and defamatory”.
