DSS arrests man who created viral video of Mohammed Buhari’s fake wedding

The Department of State Services (DSS) has arrested Kabiru Mohammed, a Kano State indigene, for allegedly creating and sharing fake videos depicting a wedding ceremony between President Muhammadu Buhari and Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq.

Mohammed, 32, had reportedly released the video which sparked a frenzy across the nation in October.

Peter Afunanya, DSS spokesman, yesterday confirmed the arrest of the suspect, saying he is at the DSS headquarters. He said an investigation was launched, following a formal complaint to the service by the Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed, whom the video also showed as getting married to the President.

Afunanya warned members of the public to avoid circulating misleading information, highlighting the negative effects of fake news. “We want to use this opportunity to once again please ask Nigerians as always that the spread of false news through social media does not do well for any person.  TheGuardianng
