However, findings by Naija News revealed that the report is ‘FAKE’ and the SUV cars displayed in the video belongs to an auto mart, Al-Wadjoud park in Cotonou.
Naija News understands that the widespread of ‘FAKE NEWS’ is one of the reasons why the federal government of Nigeria has insisted on establishing social media bill in the country.
Meanwhile, the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, SERAP has vowed to sue the federal government and Governors of the Northern region over the proposed social media bill.
SERAP in a series of tweets in early November said the group would sue them if the social media bill is passed and signed by President Muhammadu Buhari, Naija News reports.
