Press statement of Lagos State Commissioner of Health @ProfAkinAbayomi press release was posted by Gboyega Akosile on his twitter pages that,
I hereby implore the general public to disregard the fake and misleading news circulating in the media to the effect that I have tested positive to #COVID19 infection.
It is evident that the fake news is calculated at causing panic and unnecessary anxiety amongst the populace.
I therefore urge the public to disregard any news on #COVID19 that does not emanate from @followslasg official communication channels and other verifiable sources.
Remain vigilant and continue to play your part as responsible citizens in curtailing the spread of #COVID19 in our communities”.
