Nasarawa State Assembly orders for SSG media aides’ arrest over fake news. Speaker of the House Ibrahim Balarabe Abdullahi read the House’ resolution after the chairman, House Committee on Information, Mohammed Omadefu raised the issue under the matter of public interest during the housing emergency sitting in Lafia Tuesday.
The Nasarawa State House of Assembly has ordered for the arrest of the Media Aides of the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Alhaji Aliyu Tijani Ahmed, for allegedly inciting the public against the members.
He said that the arrest of peddlers of fake news and hate speech on social media by security agencies for prosecution would serve as a deterrent to others
Ahmed had alleged in a post on social media the state government gave the assembly members N11m each as a palliative to their constituents over COVID-19 pandemic.
He said, “Such reports are capable of creating confusion and are inciting us against our people. ” One Ja’afar M. Loko, Abahuraira Mohammed Mainasara, Umar A Abdullahi and Shuaibu Sani, are the main people circulating reports on social media that the governor gave us money for a palliative to our constituents.”
He equally called on the state government to issue a statement to clear the air on the purported funds. He said no amount of intimidations, mischiefs, insults will divert their attention and they will continue to protect the integrity of the house just as he urged them to remain focused.
It is in view of this that the house has mandated the chairmen house committee on security and Information to meet with the security agencies for the arrest of those involved in such acts for the prosecution to serve as a deterrent to others.
