    Sanwo-Olu’s convoy not booed at Teslim Balogun Stadium, says aide

    The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor of Lagos State, Gboyega Akosile, has described as false a video claiming to show people booing the convoy of his principal, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

    The video which was shared by a Twitter user, @absuxxess, showed several cars leaving the premises of the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere where the Super Eagles of Nigeria clashed with Lesotho in an African Cup of Nations qualifier game on Tuesday.

    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.

    According to the Twitter user who shared the video: “Immediately Governor Sanwo-Olu departed Teslim Balogun stadium after the match. Hear the response from supporters…”

    Reacting to the video, Sanwo-Olu’s aide described it as false, adding that it is not the Governor’s convoy.

    “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,” he tweeted.

    See the video below.
