A man identified as Kuhe Alberts Hemennsse Doc has been arrested in Makurdi, the Benue State capital after he made a false statement on Facebook with reference to the state governor.
Earlier today, Kuhe had written a fictitious story on his Facebook wall under the title, “Wan Torkwas Alaaga, Tell Gov Ortom that engine oil boy died yesterday ” alleging that the governor’s convoy on Sunday knocked down one Aondohemba Ioryisa who later died due to internal bleeding.
But this story was false.
According to reports, Kuhe was said to be talking of one Agidi, an indigene of Mbabegha, Nzorov, Nongov, Guma Local government who was knocked down by an unidentified white SUV in Makurdi and sought the governor’s help for medical assistance, where the governor directed that he should be taken care of. This particular young man is not dead and is pictured below with a bandage.
Kuhe was arrested by the police today and is already undergoing interrogation before he will be charged to court.
Kuhe who knelt down and begged for misinformation, revealed that he picked the story at a barber shop in Makurdi where he had gone to have a haircut. He didn’t realise the story was false before heading to Facebook to make the update.
