FAKE NEWS: Disregard video of smashed Nigerian Embassy cars
An old video of an incident that happened in 2019 at the Nigeria embassy London is currently circulating on social media. This is misinformation, as the perpetrators of the fake news are presenting the incident to cause disaffection.
Fact Checkers have confirmed that this incident was in 2019 when a man, who was later confirmed to be mentally challenged, smashed the cars packed in front of the Nigeria House, Northumberland Avenue London.
The Metropolitan Police has since sanctioned the individual.The video circulating with the caption: “Ambassador Sarafa Tunji Isola was shocked – IPOB/OBIdients at the Nigerian Embassy in London” is FAKE NEWS!The OBldients did not exist in 2017. The description is not only false, His Excellency, Ambassador Sarafa Tunji was not even the High Commissioner to the UK in 2017.
The Nigeria High Commission London is currently undergoing refurbishment and facelift as seen in the recent photographs of the Nigeria House, London.Nigeria High Commission London wants to assure Nigerians home and abroad that there is no cause for alarm.
The staff of the Mission are more than before equipped to provide improved and better service delivery. It is really unimaginable that any “decent” person or persons will go out of their way to circulate a 2017 incident caused by someone with mental health challenges as a recent event in 2023. This is very mischievous.It is obvious that some people are hell-bent on causing discord among peace loving Nigerians, home and abroad.
Please disregard and don’t spread FAKE NEWS.
