Atiku deletes, denies posts condemning lynching of Sọkọto student

Atiku Abubakar has deleted and denied the posts he made syndicated on his Facebook and Twitter pages about slain Deboral Samuel after coming under a barrage of threats from fanatics of northern origin who asked him to forget his presidential ambition.

Mr Atiku’s posts around 10:20 p.m. Thursday were deleted less than an hour later. Both had garnered thousands of reactions within minutes.

Most of the comments were from fundamentalists who warned the politician to stay clear from condemning the murder of the Christian student.

“There can not be a justification for such gruesome murder. Deborah Yakubu was murdered. Those behind her death must be brought to justice,” Mr Atiku said. “My condolences to her family and friends.”

On Facebook, the former Vice President with a message on his verified Hausa page, distanced himself from the message. He also stated that any message on social media that did not come with the initials “A. A.” were not his.

“This evening, I received information that a post was made that doesn’t agree with my orders. I use this to announce that any post without A. A. is not from me. May God protect us,” he wrote in Hausa language.
