Hamzat gave the warning in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Tunde Alao after a rally in Lagos, a picture went viral after the Labour Party (LP) candidate’s followers labelled it Hamzat’s son.
The rejoinder explained that the individual in the photograph is neither the deputy governor’s son nor his relative.
“Lagos State Deputy Governor’s son Femi Hamzat, joins the obidient rally in support of Peter Obi” was the caption.
It called the claim another mischievous, false and malicious attempt to cause friction between the deputy governor and loyalists across Nigeria.
