According to the caption on the photograph, the luxury SUV had been abandoned for days after breaking down. The story also claimed that police officers were contracted to secure the vehicle for the owner.

But the story was later discredited by Dele Momodu, who explained that Osibona parked the car in front of one of the sites of his building projects. According to the Ace publisher of Ovation Magazine, it was there someone took the picture and “had plenty of time to distribute the fake news”.
