In yesterday’s edition of Vanguard, we published a story with the headline: “Controversy trails Aregbesola’s son’s alleged arrest, “and quoting a source as confirming the arrest of the son of Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State for money laundering. We have since discovered that the report was false in its entirety as no son of Governor Aregbesola was arrested as reported.

We hereby tender our sincere apology for the embarrassment the story must have caused the governor and his family.”
