A video of security guards frogmarching a Black man has been shared thousands of times on Facebook in Nigeria alongside a claim that it shows the governor of Nevada state being manhandled because he is an African-American unknown to the police. However, the man in the clip is Republican politician Mack Miller, who is vying for the office of lieutenant governor in Nevada, but is not the incumbent governor. Another video of the same events shows Miller was not the only one ejected from the meeting where local officials passed a resolution declaring Covid-19 misinformation a public health crisis.
