FG To Investigate Buhari's Death RumoursMinister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has vowed to investigate and punish those behind President Muhammadu Buhari’s death rumour.
Lai Mohammed said in a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday.
The source/sources of the fabricated messages are already being investigated and the authors should prepare to face the consequences of their actions.
The emerging trend of resorting to destabilization and scare-mongering is not unexpected, considering this government’s clampdown on the corrupt elements in the society, the plugging of all financial leaks which has derailed the gravy train of the looters of public treasury and the enthronement of probity and transparency in the polity.
While we will neither stifle press freedom nor abridge the citizens’ right to express themselves freely, whether through criticism or protests, the security agencies will neither allow any resort to violence nor a willful subversion of the state for whatever reason.
