Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka speaking at the ongoing conference on fake news said that fake news is capable of causing 3rd World War.
The erudite professor warned that fake news should be treated as a crime.
INEC representative, Festus Okoye, a National Commissioner, posited that fake news constitutes a danger to the forthcoming general elections and therefore stressed the need for the security operatives to be watchful.
Okoye also noted that the country has an army of angry people with different agenda. The way out, he said as a people, we should be able to draw a line between what to believe and what not to believe.
On the side of the security, he urged them to be watchful and be proactive as space is amorphous.
