The Presidency has reported that a fake Twitter handle purportedly belonging to President Muhammadu Buhari is in circulation.
The presidency revealed this on Saturday in a statement signed by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.
The statement reports that the spurious tweets from the Twitter handle seeks to justify attacks by herdsmen, saying they were only defending themselves.
“Evil doers and enemies of our country are obviously at work, seeking ways to further advance their pernicious acts. The message is denounced in its entirety, and President Buhari stands by his earlier condemnation of the killings in Benue and other parts of the country as dastardly and unacceptable before God and man. Those behind the concocted message are also enemies of God and man, who have no place in a decent society,” the statement read.
Adesina adds that the president stands by his earlier directives that all those behind wanton killings in any part of the country must be brought to book.
