The All Progressives Congress (APC) has described as fake news a social media report that some Nigerians have stormed the Nigerian House in London in protest against President Muhammadu Buhari.
Buhari is in London where he will spend two weeks for a medical check-up.
One Twitter user, @Tqswaggerboi, shared photos of some protesters with a claim that they were awaiting Buhari’s arrival at the Nigerian House in London.
“Hundreds of protesters of Nigeria descent have stormed the Nigeria House in London, awaiting the arrival of President Muhammadu Buhari who is on a two weeks medical trip. #BuhariMustGo,” he captioned the photos.
Reacting to the post, the UK chapter of the APC said, “Please be advised that your @Tqswaggerboi 7.54am post is FAKE NEWS!”
The party shared links to the website where the photos were gotten, which shows that they were not taken recently but from the UK version of the EndSARS protests of October 2020.
