The management of Daar Communications Plc. says it never published any report stating that President Muhammadu Buhari was dead in London.
The media conglomerate, in a statement on Wednesday, said a faceless and mischievous group was responsible for the purported reported which it said was posted on a fake AIT Facebook account.
“The attention of the Management of Daar Communications Plc has been drawn to a FACEBOOK Account purportedly being operated by our Organisation.
“A report was published on the FACEBOOK that the incumbent President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari, who is currently on vacation in London has passed on.
“We wish to state the following facts:
“It is falsehood dressed up as truth that we opened such FACEBOOK Account.
“We did not publish nor know anything about the report.
“None of our Correspondents in London filed such report.
“The Facebook account is the brain child of a faceless and mischievous group whose despicable activities must be investigated by security agencies because of the unpleasant consequences.
“We wish to state that AIT runs an official on-line site for News which is not available for use by outsiders.
“We dissociate ourselves completely from anything contained in the said report which is a figment of the imagination of the authors.
“We also disown the so-called Facebook account, and have officially reported to Facebook managers.”
