The Minister commended the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo who intervened in the crisis which he said could have brought great problem on the problem.

Mohammed cited the alleged uncovering of N21 billion and thousands of PVC and assorted weapon at the private residence of the sacked DSS boss, Lawal Daura as one of the ways fake news was affecting the country.
