In the early hours of today AUgust 16, Adejobi tweeted
”I was driving today in abuja, and one road safety officer who wanted to arrest me for using phone, heard me instructing the DPO to put one person in d cell, he just saluted me, and passed me. This is to say “to every rule, there must be an exception to save some situations”. Lol”
His tweet elicited reactions from Nigerians who took to his Twitter page to slam him for ”breaking the law and coming online to brag about it”.
Adejobi in response to one the comments, said the incident never happened and that he was only testing the strength of fake news. See his tweet below.
