Gboyega Akosile, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor of Lagos State, on Wednesday, described as false a video claiming to show people booing the convoy of his principal, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Tuesday evening at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere.
The 23 seconds video, which a Twitter user, @absuxxess, shared, showed some cars leaving the premises of the Teslim Balogun Stadium after the Super Eagles of Nigeria defeated Lesotho 3-0 in an African Cup of Nations, AFCON, qualifier tie on Tuesday evening.
Some youths at the Stadium gate booed the occupants of the cars with a chant of ‘Ole,’ which means ‘thief’ in the Yoruba language.
The Twitter user wrote, “Immediately Governor Sanwo-Olu departed Teslim Balogun stadium after the match. Hear the response from supporters…”
However, reacting to the video, Akosile, in a tweet, insisted that it was not Sanwo-Olu’s convoy.
Akosile wrote, “This is wrong, totally false. This is not Governor @jidesanwoolu’s convoy. Let’s stay away from spreading falsehoods. I’d implore you to correct your wrongful publication.”
