Fact Check

Did Nobel Peace Prize Winner Dr. Mukwege Resign Over Directive to Declare all Illness Coronavirus?

By Fact CheckNo Comments

VERDICT: False

CLAIM: 

Several online sources, including a Nigerian Facebook page, NEWS, shared a viral post which claims Dr. Denis Mukwege, the joint winner of the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize, resigned as head of a local task force fighting COVID-19 in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The report said Dr. Mukwege resigned because he was directed to inflate numbers of Coronavirus cases in the country.

The claim reads: “He declares, “I cannot in any case dirty my Nobel Peace Prize for money, we had been ordered to declare any illness to be coronavirus and any death.”

According to the report, Mukwege was displeased that after more than 100 samples, none came out positive against the directive.

“I have a career to protect, and I am Congolese by blood. Getting rich by lying is a sin before God, I quit,” the report added.

This claim, shared by several sources on Facebook and other platforms multiple times, wa also aggregated by All Africa news platform.

As at the time of reporting this, the false claim on a Cameroonian blog Kiffa’s blog which its version of the story seen on All Africa news has gained over 4,000 shares on the blog’s Facebook page with hundreds of comments.

FACT:

Dr. Denis Mukwege never made the above statement. A press statement released by the Nobel Peace Prize winner, announcing his resignation from the response team, clearly stated reason for his decision.

He said the claim by the viral report was never part of his reason for quitting his position.

In responding to the claim Mukwege said: “On the one hand, the impossibility of having in our province of RT ‐ PCR allowing to confirm the diagnosis of COVID + rapidly. The time required, of more than two weeks, to receive the results of the samples sent to the INRB in Kinshasa, constituted a major handicap for our strategy based on “testing, identifying, isolating and treating.”

‘’On the other hand, a loosening of prevention measures by our population, a denial of realities, the impossibility of enforcing barrier measures, the porosity of our borders with the massive return of thousands of compatriots from neighbouring countries without having been quarantined, decreased the effectiveness of our strategy.’’ Dr. Mukwege’s statement read in part.

An investigation by fact-checkers at the Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD), revealed the purported claim is not on Dr Mukwege official social media and websites.

CDD fact-checkers only found what can be termed as a rebuttal considering the absence of the statement attributed to him on his webiste and official Facebook page. 

It also said: “Please note that all statements or press releases posted appearing to be in my name, that does not appear on our social networks, or official sites (Panzi Foundation DRC, Panzi Foundation USA, Mukwege Foundation, and Panzi Hospital) are unauthorized and/ or fraudulent statements.”

Reacting to the claim, Maud Salomé Ekila, the Communication Manager at the Mukwege Foundation in a statement described the posts as “fake news.”

She said: “These are not Dr. Denis Mukwege’s words. It’s incredible that the media and people online share this false information when we have official accounts where his resignation was explained and justified in a statement.”

The NEWS which first shared the claim in Nigeria has since deleted the claim on its Facebook page after our fact-checkers reached out to them with the text of the statement released by Dr. Mukwege announcing his resignation.

Despite the action by the owners of the page, a screenshot of the posts from both Kiffas Blog and the News is circulating across Social media space as they are yet to delete the posts.

CONCLUSION

Nobel Peace Prize winner Dr. Denis Mukwege did not resign from the leadership of the COVID-19 task force in DR Congo because he was directed to manipulate patient numbers as claimed by the viral posts.

He said he resigned due to other reasons, which was stated clearly in his resignation statement. These include weak and inconsistencies in the government’s response to the pandemic.

Dr. Mukwege said a ‘denial of the realities’ by the citizens and the massive return of thousands of compatriots from neighbouring countries without being quarantined makes the job of the task force almost impossible.

CDD is urging members of the public to verify all information before sharing

Did WHO Say COVID-19 Is Not Transmissible By An Asymptomatic Patient?

By Fact CheckNo Comments

VERDICT: False

CLAIM

On Tuesday, June 16, 2020, fact-checkers at the Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) spotted a WhatsApp viral video. According to the video, the World Health Organisation (WHO) said that asymptomatic Coronavirus patients do not transmit the virus to other people. 

The message accompanying the video of three minutes and six seconds read that there is a turning point as WHO has said that COVID-19 asymptomatic patients need no isolation.

The message also said that the world had been deceived into practising social-distancing and wear face-masks while millions of jobs and trillions of dollars were lost.

FACT: 

An Investigation by CDD fact-checkers revealed that the claim is hinged on a video of Maria Van Kerkhove, WHO’s Technical Lead on the COVID-19 pandemic.

In her comments in the video, Kerkhove said: “In the data that we have, it’s still rare that an asymptomatic person actually transmits onward to a secondary individual.”

The claim used Maria’s seven seconds response to justify that the international organisation has created confusion and deceived people – forcing them to adhere to several measures – since the disease outbreak.

Further checks revealed that Maria’s comment was blown out of context as she did not say asymptomatic patients need no isolation and made no comments on wearing a face mask or maintaining social distancing.

In reports published by statnews on June 9, 2020, “Maria Van Kerkhove acknowledged that her use of the phrase, “very rare,” had been a miscommunication.  

She said she had based that phrasing on findings from a small number of studies that followed asymptomatic cases and tracked how many of their contacts became infected.

According to Maria, she never meant to imply that, “asymptomatic transmission globally” was rarely happening, because that is yet to be determined.

The WHO official said COVID-19 carriers not showing symptoms can spread the virus, whether they ultimately feel sick or not. 

She also added that wearing masks and keeping a social distance is so important in limiting transmission.

Explaining further, Van Kerkhove said that when health officials review cases that have initially been reported to be asymptomatic.

“We find out that many have really mild disease,” Maria said, adding that there are some infected people who are truly asymptomatic and countries practising detailed contact tracing are “not finding secondary transmission onward,” from those cases.  

“It’s very rare,” she said.

Giving a broader clarification on the claim in a report published by the Guardian that she suggested asymptomatic patients don’t transmit the virus, Maria Van Kerkhove said “I used the phrase ‘very rare’ and I think that it’s a misunderstanding to state the asymptomatic transmission globally is very rare. What I was referring to was a subset of studies. I was also referring to some data that isn’t published.”

CONCLUSION:

World Health Organizations did not say asymptomatic patients cannot transmit Coronavirus and need no isolation. 

The international organisation did not also say that people have been deceived into maintaining social distancing and wearing face masks. 

CDD is, therefore, urging the public to disregard the message and stop sharing unverified claims.

Did Benue Lawmaker Donate 'Goat Ropes' to His Constituents?

By Fact CheckNo Comments

VERDICT: False and Misleading 

CLAIM: On Sunday, June 14, 2020, Agba Jalingo, freelance journalist and blogger, tweeted a picture on his twitter handle @agbajalingo_ with the caption, ‘’Hon. Daniel Ukpera of the Benue State HOA donates  brand new colourful ropes to his community to help tie their goats.’’

Attached to the post were different photographs of Daniel Ukpera and some members of the community holding their goats with the ropes.

Several online blogs in Africa, including Nigeria, Kenya, Zambia, and Ghana, reported the story.

FACT: 

The tweet by Jalingo at the time of writing this report has been retweeted by over 1,400 Twitter users and liked 1,200 times. It has also generated 616 comments. 

However, CDD investigation shows that Daniel Ukpera is not a member of the Benue State House of Assembly as falsely tweeted by Agba Jalingo.

CDD checks also showed that Ukpera had contested in the last election for Guma State Constituency seat in the Benue State House of Assembly Election under the platform of the Labour Party but lost it to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) contestant.

CONCLUSION

Mr. Daniel Ukpera is not a member of the Benue State House of Assembly, as claimed by Mr. Agba’s viral tweet. 

While media houses have reported the correct information, Mr. Agba Jalingo, who was the first to report the story is yet to correct or retract his viral story rife with false claims.

This CDD is urging media practitioners, editors, and members of the public to verify all information before sharing. 

Did Oyo Government announce Resumption of School Activities For JSS 3 And SS3 Students?

By Fact CheckNo Comments

VERDICT: True

CLAIM: On June 15, 2020, fact-checkers at the Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) spotted a report online claiming that the Oyo state government has announced resumption activities for junior and senior secondary students in examination classes.

The report headlined; COVID-19: “Oyo State Resumes Academic Activities for JSS3 and SS3 students” has gone viral and raised a lot of controversies on the social media space.

FACT: Investigations by fact-checkers at the CDD show that the Oyo government’s COVID-19 task force announced ease of the lockdown issued by the state. 

A statement released on Monday, June 15, 2020, by Taiwo Adisa, the chief press secretary to Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State said, the task force decided after it met with the chairman, the governor.

According to the statement, decisions reached between the task force and the governor includes the resumption of classes for Primary Six, JSS3, and SS3 students from Monday, June 29.

The statement also said that the resumption of work by all categories of workers at the state secretariat would be on June 22, while worship places will operate at 25 percent capacity. 

Adisa said the plan to limit public gathering to not more than 25 persons is to contain the spread of the Coronavirus disease in the state.

Further checks by CDD also show that students in critical classes (JSS3 and SS3) are to resume at the end of June 2020, to ensure they are well prepared for the public examinations ahead.

The schools are also to observe the COVID-19 guidelines that the task force released. 

These guidelines include that schools must ensure that stations for washing of hands are provided with the support of their Parents/Teachers Associations (PTA), while all students are to put a face mask compulsorily.

CONCLUSION

CDD fact-checkers can confirm that at the time of releasing this fact check on June 16, 2020, this claim is “TRUE.”

CDD is urging members of the public to read beyond headlines before sharing any news report, especially from blogs in the habit of using sensational headlines to draw traffic to their blogs.

Is Federal Government Distributing 30,000 Relief Funds to Nigerians?

By Fact CheckNo Comments

VERDICT: False

CLAIM: The Center for Democracy and Development (CDD) on Sunday, June 14, 2020, sighted a WhatsApp message claiming that the Federal Government has approved N30,000 as a palliative for every Nigerian.

The claim said the fund will serve as relief for the Coronavirus pandemic ravaging the country.

It also said citizens will be credited instantly once they apply for the funds online.

FACT: Like so many other claims on FG palliatives, fact-checks by the CDD have shown that this too is a hoax.

Investigations by our fact-checkers show that the claim is a scam from some online scammers to lure innocent Nigerians into providing their personal details including account numbers and Bank Verification Number (BVN).

This pattern has been used severally by scammers since the outbreak of COVID-19 and announcement of lockdown by the FG.

The only verified relief fund by the government is the Conditional Cash Transfer of N20,000 to most vulnerable groups in Nigeria. The fund is coordinated by the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management.

CONCLUSION: 

The FG has not announced any N30,000 palliative for her citizens. There is only an N20,000 CCT coordinated by the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management and not online.

The CDD urges the general public to desist from spreading disinformation or unverified news across any social media platforms.

Beware of Death Rumours online: Is Nollywood Veteran Actor Olu Jacobs Dead?

By Fact CheckNo Comments

VERDICT: False

CLAIM: On June 10, 2020, multiple online sources claimed that Nigerian actor Olu Jacobs had died after a brief illness. The news trended on Twitter and Facebook all day. 

The claim was also published by a blog and was shared extensively on Facebook.

FACT:

Olu Jacobs is not dead. An investigation by our fact-checkers reveals the rumour started on Nairaland in a post that has now been deleted. 

The 78 years old award-winning actor who has starred in many international movies and television shows is married to Joke Silva.

Debunking the viral report, Joke said her husband is alive.

She said her “family found the development so depressing that members had to speak out.”

Also, in reaction to the claims, the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) debunked the rumour warning mischief makers to desist from spreading false information about members of the guild.

The AGN described such act as wickedness.

Spreading death rumours and hoaxes about popular figures is not new to the Nigerian social media and online space. 

On June 4, 2020, popular former Nollywood actor Hanks Anuku was also rumoured to have died after a brief illness by several media sources. The actor who now lives in Ghana released a video to debunked the rumour.

Nigerian Actors Rumored to Have died in the past include:

Ramsey Noah

In July 2017, Nollywood actor, Ramsey Noah, was rumoured to have died while filming at a location, in Ghana. 

Ramsey took to his Instagram page to debunk the news on July 11, 2017. 

Chiwetalu Agu

Veteran Nollywood actor, Chiwetalu Agu, was rumoured to have died by a post on Facebook in February this year.

The 64-year-old actor, who was upset about the speculation, resorted to cursing those behind it.

He described the rumour of his death while alive as malicious.

Fadeyi Oloro

Veteran Yoruba actor, Fadeyi Oloro whose real name is Ojo Arowosafe, had his share of rumoured death in May 2019. 

Oloro was later discovered to have only been hospitalized. 

Others who have not been spared in these malicious act include; Pete Edochie, Odunlade Adekola, Nkeam Owoh, Muna Obiekwe, Jim Iyke, Ghanian-Nigerian actor Van Vicker, Foluke Daramola, and Kannywood’s Maryam Yahaya.

Why People Spread Death Rumours

False death announcements of public figures on social media can be classified under the following: accidental; misreported; misunderstood; hacked, and hoaxed with the last the most popular in Nigeria.

It generates engagement and online traffic to the website.

It is fun for some misinformers.

There is no video of 70-year Woman Accusing Buhari of Rape; It's Clickbait

By Fact CheckNo Comments

VERDICT: FALSE

CLAIM: 

On Wednesday, June 3, 2020, the Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) spotted a report published by two blogs claiming that a 70-year-old woman had accused President Muhammadu Buhari of raping her.

According to the blogs’ headlines, the woman claimed, in a video, that the President perpetrated the act in 1972.

The headline read: ‘’Video of an old woman who claimed Buhari raped her in 1972 Trends online (Photos)’’

Also, within a few hours of publishing the report, it began to trend on Facebook with over a thousand shares and 800 reactions at the time of this report.

FACT

Following the traction the bizarre headline was getting, our fact-checkers tried to ascertain the source. 

CDD’s fact-checkers traced the story to two blogs known for publishing false stories and click baits, Cyoungblogs and Legitfund. 

In April 2020, one of the blogs published a false story with the headline, ’’I have sent 5,000 To all Nigerians using BVN – Obasanjo’’. CDD fact-checkers later debunked the story.

Our findings also show that Cyoungblogs publishes under the page Gold Media Nigeria with over 800,000 followers on Facebook and is a hub for the propagation of false and misleading headlines and clickbait. 

While the headline says a video was trending online, no footage was included in the body of the report, nor was there a mention of the video in it.

Instead, a link to photos was created at the end of the blog post, which leads to several advert sites promising people the opportunity to make an enormous amount of money in a short time trading online.

It is therefore evident that the story was created as clickbait to drive traffic to the blog as a detailed search of the internet reveals there is no such video trending online.

Contacted by CDD fact-checkers, Bashir Ahmad, the Personal Assistant on New Media to President Buhari, said the claim is false and baseless.

Ahmad said: “The claim of course is false and baseless and the New Media Department is aware of it and has since forwarded to the appropriate agencies for further actions.”

CONCLUSION

There is no video of a 70-year-old woman accusing Buhari of rape in 1972, as alleged by the false blog post headline.

The blog is a clickbait site that specializes in spreading falsehood and rumours.

The CDD urges the general public to desist from disseminating such disinformation and always verify reports from authorised sources.

Is UN Creating New Country From Nigeria and Cameroon?

By Fact CheckNo Comments

VERDICT: False and Misleading

CLAIM:  Several sources online have published reports claiming that the United Nations will, on July 10, 2020, carve out and proclaim a country from Nigeria and Cameroon. 

The new country, the reports claim, will be called the UN Organisation State of Cameroon.

A Guardian Newspaper report claims the arrangement will see Nigeria losing 24 local councils, which were ceded by former President Olusegun Obasanjo to Paul Biya of Cameroon.


FACT

There is no truth in the report as the United Nations does not have the unilateral power to create new countries from existing countries.

The purported UNO State of Cameroon does not meet the requirement, especially the Montevideo Convention, which suggests that no state has the right to intervene in the internal or external affairs of another.

The United Nations Office in Nigeria has also denied knowledge of any plan to create a country from Nigeria and Cameroon.

An AIT Live report quoted a UN source who dismissed the report as false, saying the UN does not create countries.

Also refuting the story, Mr. Dahiru Bobbo, former director-general of the National Boundary Commission, said there is no truth in the report.

He told Francis Okoye of the Leadership Newspaper that: “As far as I am concerned as the director-general of the National Boundary Commission of Nigeria from 1999 to 2006, I can confirm that there was never a summit between Obasanjo and Biya throughout 2003’’.

“Therefore, there could have been no agreement, treaty, communique, or any other bilateral exchange of documents between Cameroon and Nigeria on cessation of territories to the UN or to anybody for that matter, ” Bobbo said.

He said there were two summits attended by Obasanjo and Biya and that the communique issued on the two occasions were in respect of the establishment of a Cameroon Nigerian Mixed Commission.

Bobby added that commission would be established on the implementation of the decisions of the International Court of justice at the Hague (The World Court) on the Bakassi Peninsula and the Land Boundary between Nigeria and Cameroon.

“The mixed commission of which I was a member and secretary handled the assignment and handed over territories to both Cameroon and Nigeria as ruled by the World Court, including Dambore, Narki (Borno), and Burha Vango (Adamawa to Nigeria and  Bakassi Peninsula to Cameroon.

Furthermore, there is no available evidence to show that a new country has applied to become a member of the United Nations according to UN rules, which requires that a letter is written to the secretary-general requesting membership.

The Security Council must refer you to the General Assembly, which must determine by a two-thirds majority that you are a peace-loving state that can carry out the duties of the U.N. Charter.

Further verification by our fact-checkers shows that the claim is based on a misrepresentation of the Greentree Agreement between Nigeria and Cameroon signed by former President Olusegun Obasanjo for Nigeria and Paul Biya for Cameroon over the disputed oil-rich Bakassi peninsula.

The Greentree Agreement was a formal treaty that resolved the Cameroon-Nigeria border dispute that led to violent conflict. Also, on October 10, 2002, International Criminal Justice (ICJ) gave a ruling in favour of Cameroon on the case concerning the Land and Maritime Boundary. This ruling foloowed the suit filed by Cameroon against Nigeria at the ICJ.

What does it take to create a new country?

There are no official international rules, but there are guidelines for separatist groups that want to form a new country.

The Montevideo Convention states that a region must meet four requirements to become a state; a permanent population, a defined territory, a government, and the ability to form relations with other nation-states. The last being the most important, according to scholars in International law.

CONCLUSION

The reports that the UN is carving 24 local councils out of Nigeria to create a new country is false.  

CDD is urging members of the public and even media organisations to verify all information before sharing. 

Did President Buhari Sack Security Chiefs?

By Fact CheckNo Comments

Verdict: False

CLAIM:

On Friday, May 29, 2020, Daily Mail Online published a report claiming that President Muhammadu Buhari had fired Nigeria’s security chiefs over some financial sleaze. 

According to the report, the President decided to remove the service chiefs following a financial misappropriation allegation made against them.

Also, the report claimed the late Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, had covered financial allegations against the service chiefs.

Another website, the Will, in its publication, said President Buhari approved the removal of the Service Chiefs after cases of corruption against them came to limelight weeks after the death of the Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari.

According to the Will, Kyari had always prevented such “mind-boggling corruptions from getting to the President.”

FACT:

An investigation done by fact-checkers at the Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) shows that the reports emanated from rumours shared by some quarters of the public.

Also, CDD found out that the President did not make any pronouncement on the removal of the service chiefs who have been serving in that capacity since 2015.

A check by CDD showed that the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, on Saturday, May 30, 2020, was in Maiduguri, Borno State, where he inspected the manufacturing and repairs of combat vehicles by Army Engineers.

Also, on Monday, June 1, 2020, the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, reacting to the abuse and killing of Miss Vera Uwaila, assured Nigerians that the perpetrators would be brought to justice.

The IGP in a statement released by the Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, the IGP also deployed additional investigation aids and forensic support to Edo State Police Command.

Mba said that the action aims to expedite efforts in the ongoing investigations of the killing of Miss Uwaila.

CONCLUSION:

President Muhammadu Buhari has not removed the service chiefs as widely reported by the blogs.

CDD urges people to disregard such rumours as this was all work of people that want to spoil the name of the army, and people should watch out and verify what they share.
