Former Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar (rtd.) has described the news linking him to terrorists as false.
Dr. Yakubu Suleiman, the former Head of State’s Media Aide said this in Minna while addressing the press. He said that he would have ignored such damaging news, but that he had to set the record straight.
He said: “This kind of fake news has the potential of aggravating the already tense security situation in the country and should not be condoned.”
He wondered people could be so callous and wicked to peddle such news and smear the image and character of someone like the former Head of State.
He then called on Nigerians not to listen to such image damaging news against the former Head of State and to be careful with the kind of information they post on social media.
