Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos state has denied reports that 14 staff of the government house have tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19).

A report had claimed that 14 members of staff including two security officers at the Lagos government house have contracted the dreaded virus.

But in a tweet on Tuesday evening, Gboyega Akosile, Chief Press Secretary to the governor, described the news as fake, misleading, and irresponsible.

Akosile, however, advised news platforms to be mindful of what they push out to the public at this period.

He wrote: “Please beware of fake news! The attached piece of news is fake.

“This is nothing but irresponsible reporting, at a time when all hands are on deck for action against the ravaging #COVID19.

“News platforms should be mindful of what they push out to the public at this period.”
