Is Atiku the Owner of Tiger Skyscraper Estate in Dubai?



A viral WhatsApp video which was also widely shared on TikTok and Twitter claims Atiku is the owner of an expansive skyscraping estate seen in the clip. The claim is FALSE

Facts are:

After close observation of the video, we found two overlapping usernames. Although blurry, they were two different user identities. using the InVid Metadata tool, we extracted relevant information about the given data and the result shows that the video may have been technically tampered with as the creation date reads, “Fri Jan 01, 1904, 00:13:35 GMT+0013 (West Africa Standard Time).”

Similarly, using the same tool, the coordinates of the clip were missing hence its origin could not be geolocated. 

We, therefore, deployed the Jeffrey metadata viewer to extract the coordinates but it again proved abortive, however it revealed the original IP address as 

Using a web-based IP address we traced the original location which revealed that the clip originated from Abuja the Federal Capital Territory with Latitude: of 9.05735 (9° 3′ 26.46″ N) and Longitude: of 7.48976 (7° 29′ 23.14″ E) as seen in the image


The claim that Atiku is the owner of Tiger Skyscraper Estate in Dubai is therefore FALSE.
