Nafeza 2 world - Mr Omilana has 7.49 million followers on YouTube.

In a video posted on X, he said: "We attempted to run Niko Omilana in multiple places across the country and somehow we managed to make it happen."

The Electoral Commission said: "It is an offence for an individual to provide false information on nomination papers when applying to stand as a candidate, including to falsely confirm that they are not standing in another constituency.

"If that has occurred, it would be a matter for the police to consider."

It added that under electoral law, returning officers must take the details provided in candidate nomination forms at face value, and accept them if they meet the requirements.

A full list of candidates standing in each constituency in the general election on 4 July is on the BBC website.
