Deborah: Atiku Denies Deleted Facebook, Twitter Posts

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has distanced himself from a deleted post on his verified Facebook and Twitter pages condemning the assassination of Deborah Samuel after receiving threats from northern zealots urging him to abandon his presidential ambitions.

Deborah was slain and burned by irate zealots at the Shehu Shagari College of Education (SSCOE) in Sokoto on Thursday, according to the Nation.

During a heated dispute with fellow students, she was slain on the grounds of the College after being accused of disrespecting Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

The former vice president, Atiku ‘s post was created about 10:20 p.m. on Thursday, but according to The Nation, it was deleted less than an hour later.

According to a snapshot, both posts received thousands of replies and backlashes within minutes.

The majority of the comments came from fundamentalists warning the politician not to denounce the Christian student’s death.

“There cannot be a justification for such brutal murder,” Atiku wrote in a now-deleted post. Deborah Yakubu was murdered, and all those responsible for her death must face justice.”

In a separate post on the People’s Democratic People (PDP) presidential aspirant’s verified Hausa Facebook page, Atiku claimed the post wasn’t from him, claiming that any post without an AA should be ignored.

The translated post reads: “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 AA is not from me. May God protect – AA.”

Minutes after Atiku deleted the tweets, tweeps took to their handles to vehemently react to the development hereby making the PDP aspirant trend on Twitter.

Popular tweep, Morris Monye said: “Atiku was not really sympathetic. Tried to appease the South, saw reaction from the North, deleted. He feels it’s better not to offend the North than offend the South because Southerners are slaves and will vote for him anyways.Our politicians are the wickedest people on earth.”
