He also warned against the use of manipulated and doctored media content to blackmail or defame innocent personalities.

“You should always verify any news item that came to you through the social media because they are full of blackmail and mischief, all in an attempt to damage people’s reputation,” he added.

He noted that most of the cemeteries in the state were in bad shape, adding that efforts should be made to put them in good shape.
