Osinbajo – Fake News Landed Me In Trouble With My Wife


Nigerian Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has complained about the effects of ‘fake news’, stating that it even landed him in trouble with his wife recently.

While speaking at a BBC symposium in Abuja on Wednesday, 8th of January 2019, Osinbajo said a malicious blog post put up a picture allegedly showing him in the company of strippers.

The Vice-President then stated that when the picture was inspected closely, he realized he had indeed taken a photograph with the ladies at an entertainment event, but they were fully clothed. He added that the blogger selected a picture of where the ladies were not completely clothed and presented it to the public inaccurately.

Osinbajo lamented, “As it turns out, I wasn’t in the picture where they were not wearing clothes but just the caption, the stories gave the impression that here I was in the company of these ladies at a point when they were doing their business. I think the capacity of fake news to cause harm is not in doubt at all.”
