The Nigerian Presidency has disowned a message on a fake Twitter handle purportedly belonging to President Muhammadu Buhari in which the President was said to have declared support for the Herdsmen killing farmers.
The message, the Presidency said, in a statement by the Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, quoted President Buhari as justifying herdsmen attacks on farmers saying they were only defending themselves.
Femi Adesina cursed those behind the concocted message, adding that they “are also enemies of God and man, who have no place in a decent society.”
Adesina described the message as spurious which he said “evil doers and enemies of our country” have again embarked upon, “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.
“The President stands by his earlier directives that all those behind wanton killings in any part of the country must be brought to book.”
