The federal government has been directed to arrest anybody found peddling alleged death rumours about President Muhammadu Buhari.
This directive was given by the Association of Nigerian Entrepreneurs in the Diaspora in a statement. According to the group, the rumour of death of President Muhammadu Buhari is evil.
Daily Post reports that to avoid throwing the nation into chaos, the group said it was necessary to arrest peddlers of the rumours.
The chairman of the group Charles Sylvester, who signed the statement said the rumours were inhuman.
He said: “The mongers have brought emotional pain and torture not only to the members of the president’s immediate family, but to his friends, associates and indeed many Nigerians who had been distressed by the evil rumour.”
The group saluted the efforts of President Buhari and the Nigerian Army at making the country safe.

“We should all unite and support the government by capitalising on such gains,” the statement added.
In a related vein, Nigerians in the United Kingdom have denied protesting against the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
These Nigerians under the aegis of the UK chapter of the Nigerians in Diaspora Monitoring Group (NDMG) said media reports that there was a protest against President Buahri are false.
