|"Is this all real? Or has this been happening inside my head?"
The topic of this article is of a real-life subject that has been mentioned "in-universe" in a canon source. The Harry Potter Wiki is written from the perspective that all information presented in canon is true (e.g., Hogwarts really exists), and, as such, details contained in this article may differ from real world facts.
Gilderoy Lockhart once falsely claimed that he had helped put a stop to "a series of attacks" in this city, which were apparently similar in nature to petrification by a basilisk, by giving the townspeople protective amulets.
The Order of Air Voyagers for Intrepid Wizards inducted Lockhart as a member after he flew to Ouagadougou on broomstick (although Lockhart's membership certificate described the African city as "the furthest most [sic] point in Siberia", possibly indicating that the document was forged, and that Lockhart never made such a long-distance flight).
