L-R: Lagos State Deputy Governor, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat; Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and Commissioner of Police, Lagos Command, Mr. Hakeem Odumosu, during an inspection at the Tin Can Transit Park, Apapa, on Monday, December 28, 2020.

Governor Sanwo-Olu was not booed leaving the premises of the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere, his chief press secretary, Gboyega Akosile, disclosed on Twitter.

Akosile said the video is false because the Governor was not the person in the convoy.

The video which was shared by a Twitter user, @absuxxess, showed several cars leaving the premises of the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere.

As the cars were leaving the premises, some youths at the gate booed the occupants with a chant of “Ole” which is the Yoruba word for thief and also threw empty plastic bottles at the cars.

Gboyega Akosile has described as false a video claiming to show people booing the convoy of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Reacting to the video, Sanwo-Olu’s aide said:

“This is wrong, totally false. This is not Governor @jidesanwoolu’s convoy. Let’s stay away from spreading falsehoods. I’d implore you to correct your wrongful publication.”
