“I write to correct a misgiving trending in the social media by some mischief makers who have cashed in on the End SARS protests to promote falsehood against His Excellency, the Deputy Governor, Professor Sonni Tyoden.
Those who know the official residence of His Excellency, the Deputy Governor will attest to the fact that it is just a two minute drive to his office.
So, these allegations are untrue and fabricated to satisfy the conscience of the writer’s paymasters.”
