Wikipedia has locked the profile page showing details about the life of Ahmed Bola Tinubu, a former Lagos State Governor, for “persistent vandalism”.
Tinubu celebrated his birthday on March 29, 2021, and as it is his custom, a colloquium was hosted to mark the day. According to his public records, Tinubu turned 69.
However, many people believe that he is older and this led to numerous edits to his age from 69 to 79 on Wikipedia. TheCable reports that there were 84 edits made on the page.
Following these multiple attempts to change Tinubu’s age on Wikipedia, editors at Wikipedia decided to lock the page and make further public edits impossible.
