- Bashar said that the act shows the loss of moral values in the society
Alhaji Muhammadu Illiasu Bashar, the Emir of Gwandu in Kebbi state, has cried out over fake news spreading on social media about happenings in President Muhammadu Buhari's family.
Bashar, who is also the chairman of state council of chiefs, said that the act of peddling false reports on the number one family in Nigeria reveals the level of moral decadence in the country.
Specifically, the emir referred to fabricated news about a marriage and date for it between the president and Sadiya Umar Farouq, one of his ministers, The Sun reports.
The monarch, therefore, warned owners of social media outfits to be mindful of what they publish and spread as content for the consumption of readers.
He said: “Our moral behaviour has become so low that we can lie against our president, and media organisations spread it to the world.
"Some media organisations spread the fake news on President Muhammadu Buhari’s marriage, fixed the date and even finished the wedding themselves without the knowledge of the president himself.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the wife of the wife of the president, Aisha Buhari, had confirmed the authenticity of the video released by Fatima Daura, the daughter of Mamman Daura.
Aisha said that just as the video revealed, she was actually prevented from entering certain areas of the Presidential Villa.
