Lagos - Dele Momodu, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday, November 20, released a video of Lagosians walking out of a rally said to have been organised by some members of the opposition party.
It was gathered that the party members working with the PDP G-5 (Nyesom Wike, Seyi Makinde, Samuel Ortom, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, and Okezie Ikpeazu) want Lagosians not to vote for Atiku Abubakar and Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran (aka Jandor) during the 2023 general elections.

Social media user accuses Momodu of deceit
But a social media subscriber who goes by the name tajofficial001 on the platform alleged that Momodu only released an isolated clip of what really happened and intended to use it to deceive gullible persons.
According to the subscriber, this is one of the strategies used to discredit support for the PDP G-5.
"And gullible ones will believe your caption. It's obvious that your narrative of the event is based on lie.
"You posted an isolated video of people leaving the venue, and someone trying to tell gullible people why they are leaving, sharp mind will know it's just one of your caucus strategies to discredit support for the G5. Daddy abeg post full video of the event sir."
