The picture used for the fake news was from a Buzzfeed article about Jude's experience with modern-day slavery.

Jude said: "I want to let the public know today that it's not me. I went, online I saw my picture in the news that I was the alleged Uber driver who drove the coronavirus patient that came from Italy to Nigeria, from Lagos to Ogun state.

"It was shocking to me because my name is not Adewale Isaac Olorogun but my picture was there. The comments that were on the media were 'shoot him at sigh!' 'pour acid from distance!' throw stones from distance'."
