Abike Dabiri, a former aide of President Buhari and Chairman of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission joined the array of misinformation that has characterised the administration with false claim of rescue operation on the kidnapped Kankara schoolboys.
Ms Dabiri on Thursday tweeted via her verified Twitter handle that the abducted boys were rescued by the Nigerian government despite trending emotional video released by Boko Haram showing the boys in helpless condition.
Realizing her folly when called out for circulating fake news, Ms Dabiri quickly deleted the post only to claim the tweet wasn’t from her handle, but when receipt of the post was presented, she backtracks to claim her Twitter handle was hacked within the minute.
“Pls don’t credit any post on katsina boys to my twitter handle. I lost control of my handle in the last couple of minutes, along with my Instagram. I have recovered and changed my password, ” she claimed.
