Since the outbreak of coronavirus, there have been several fake news and fraudulent messages about donations from business moguls across the country.
Latest of this is the report that Africa’s richest man Alhaji Aliko Dangote was donating the sum of N20, 000 to all Nigerians as relief support.
The message which circulated on messaging app, WhatsApp and Telegram read:
“FG Promised To Pay 8500 to Weekly Allowance To Nigerians During The Pandemic But Failed. In a Bid To Control The Spread .
“Now Dangote is Set To Put A smile On Our Face. All Nigerian Citizens Are Entitled To 20000 weekly allowance just to Stay Safe.
How true is this?
We ran a check, it’s FAKE.
Already, the philanthropist announced a donation of huge sum to support the Federal Government and also supported the Kano State Government.
