FAKE NEWS ALERT: The voice note that [email protected] and Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari have been secretly flown out of the country is totally UNTRUE. It was intentionally recorded to cause chaos and fear. This fake news was originated and being circulated by one @jacksonpbn
A Presidential Jet belonging to Nigeria has been sited in Dubai. I cannot confirm if it has Buhari and Kyari in it. The jet landed in Dubai few hours ago.
I will get details in a few. Stay tuned!
