Following the incident, Tinubu, 68, has been said to have travelled to France, after the killing triggered the outburst, with hoodlums burning down several of his alleged property.

Media houses, Television Continental (TVC), and The Nation as well as the Oriental Hotel, were alleged properties to his name that were destroyed.

However, responding to questions from newsmen on Arise TV, the APC National Leader debunked the rumours, saying “I didn’t go nowhere, I am a Lagosian. And I still hold the title of Asiwaju of Lagos. And I am still a Jagaban,”

“Whatever they think, fake news is all over the place. They said Seyi my son was kidnapped, but here he is with me,” he said
