An image which has gone viral on WhatsApp claims that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has a sign reading “Center for Global Human Population Reduction” on its building.
This image has been widely shared in WhatsApp groups and broadcast on Facebook in Nigeria.
The image being circulated on WhatsApp has been photoshopped to include the words “Center for Global Human Population Reduction” on the Foundation’s building.
A search for the real image on google reveals the picture of the building façade which reads: “Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’’.
There is no ‘’Center for Global Human Population Reduction” engraved on the building of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The image circulating on WhatsApp was digitally altered to include ‘’Center for Global Human Population Reduction”.
