According to Minister, Onoja and his family are intact, safe, hale and hearty.
“The rumour is purely a satanic tales by moonlight, a fiction penned by a prevaricating mephistophelian author and shared by gullible minds.
“As a matter of fact, such fiendish news represent the worst form of “political journalism” which must be discouraged and jettisoned on Kogi's blogsphere if we must advance and get better as a people,” part of the statement read.
Last week, the Kogi state government dismissed rumours suggesting Governor Yahaya Bello has been hospitalised.
The government made the clarification in a statement sent to NAIJ.com by the director-general, media and publicity in the governor's office, Kingsley Fanwo.
The statement clarified that the governor only injured his foot while alighting from a vehicle on Friday, March 30.
