The United States Embassy in Nigeria has denied reports that the US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, described the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, as corrupt; or that he refused to meet with him when Atiku visited America in January.

The embassy, therefore, urged Nigerians to disregard the news which has been described as fake.

A false report credited to Pompeo had read, “Breaking News: I personally refused to meet him (Atiku) or have anything to do with him. I am really surprised that an individual indicted in the United States of America of huge corruption is being considered for Nigerian President and citizens are even supporting him –US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo.”

Describing the report as false, however, the US asked Nigerians to discard it.

The statement read in part, “The US Mission to Nigeria has become aware of material making the rounds purporting to be from US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo. We want to state unequivocally that the post is fake.

“If you have seen such manufactured item on Facebook or received it via WhatsApp, please communicate that it is false.”
