24-year-old Stanley Okoruwa has been arrested by the Lagos State Police for spreading false rumors on social media. Okoruwa, who operates under the Facebook username “Humble Saint TV,” falsely claimed that Nigerian businessman Emeka Okonkwo, famously known as E-Money, was involved in an affair with the wife of actor John Paul Obumneme Odonwodo, also known as Junior Pope. Okoruwa’s posts further insinuated that this alleged affair was linked to Junior Pope’s death.

The Lagos State Police Command spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin, revealed that Okoruwa’s motivation behind the defamatory posts was to attract more followers to his social media profile. Okoruwa was paraded at the Command’s Headquarters in Ikeja, where Hundeyin reiterated the importance of verifying information before sharing it online to prevent the spread of misinformation.

This incident serves as a stark reminder of the potential legal consequences of using social media platforms irresponsibly. It highlights the ongoing challenge of combating fake news and protecting the reputations of individuals who fall victim to such baseless allegations. The arrest of Okoruwa underscores the commitment of law enforcement agencies to uphold the integrity and truthfulness of information disseminated on social media.
