Rigging Plot Audio: Fayose, Obanikoro Deny Involvement


An audio claiming to have exposed how Obanikoro, Chris Uba, Omisore, Olubolade, Nigerian Army General rigged Fayose into power is going viral on the internet. The audio was said to have been released to Sahara Reporters by a soldier Captain Sagir koli who was present at the meeting.

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has however rubbished the audio saying it is fake. He said the audio clip was APC’s new calculated attempt to discredit the election results, having failed woefully both at the poll and the tribunal.

“Nigerians should also be reminded of the existence of a technology called speech software, which is good at reproducing the sounds, inflections and intonations of a human voice.

“There are softwares that can re-create voices and even bring the voices of long-dead notable persons back to life. There are softwares that can turn printed text into synthesized speech, making it possible for anyone to use recordings of a person’s voice to utter new things that the person never said. One of such softwares is called ‘Natural Voices,’ he said.

Also reacting to the audio, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro took to the social media to deny his involvement in the audio conversation.

“I have not heard the audio,but there is nowhere in the world you will find me talking about rigging an election,” he twitted.
