The United Nations, UN, has called for more efforts from all Nigerians towards ending the menace of misinformation in the country as coronavirus continues to spread across the country.

Soremekun, who described misinformation as a common enemy, urged Nigerians to play their part to break the spread of misinformation received on their phones or other devices, saying this was the only way to break the cycle of fake news in the country.

According to him, such activities through the UN Regional Information Centre, inciting and misleading posts without medical advice had been filtered down and brought down on Facebook and other platforms.
