Former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, condemned a Twitter user, Adamu Hayatu, who attacked him for sympathizing with victims of a recent tanker explosion in Abia state and accused him of angling to be the supreme leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra(IPOB).
The Turakin Adamawa had taken to Twitter to mourn the victims of the horrible accident, stating; “I read about the tanker that fell in Ehere, outside Aba with a heavy heart. I pray the children and families are ok.”
This message didn’t augur well with Hayatu who fired the former VP saying that a similar incident happened in Northern area called Tafa which Atiku did not comment on.
He tweeted; “Tafa too last week, seems you want to deputize for Supreme Leader in Biafra alone.”
Atiku fired back stating; “This is a very shameful tweet, my young friend. Children were hurt in that accident. Our only response should be sympathy.”
