Bloody Commotion As Fight Breaks Out Between Buhari, Jonathan And Fayose’s Men Over Buhari’s Death

Rumours and denial of rumours of the death of President Muhammadu Buhari, have sparked another war of words between some prominent Aides of Politicians, on Sunday, January 22.

Aides and supporters of Buhari, as well as that of former President, Goodluck Jonathan, and the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, have been throwing verbal banters at each other over the rumours, and denial.

Trouble started when the Senior Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Shehu Garba, in reacting to rumours that President Buhari had passed on, at a London Clinic, said: “He (Buhari) is unlike a past President, who was at Ota, with Chief Obasanjo, and attending the Trump inauguration in D.C., being in two places at the same time!”

Garba’s comment was seen by many as a jibe at former President, Jonathan, who on Friday, was reported to have paid a visit to former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, at his country home in Otta, Ogun State.

Jonathan was also reported by some media outfits, to have been in Washington D.C., for the inauguration of President Donald Trump.

However, Garba’s veiled punch was not taken lightly by Reno Omokri, a former Special Assistant to ex-President Jonathan, on New Media, who tweeted at Garba thus: “@GarShehu we know that your boss has reduced the naira to its lowest level ever, but you do not have to go this low!”

On his part, Lere Olayinka, an Aide to Fayose, on New Media tweeted at Garba saying: “Tweeting from Burukutu joint as usual. Nonsense!”

Olayinka however, went further to also throw a punch at Tolu Ogunlesi, a Buhari supporter, saying: “That news of @MBuhari death must have been spinned to shift our attention as usual.’’

According to him: “And they succeeded in taking our minds off the IDP “accidental” airstrike, that left over 200 dead, and the over N3 billion Aso Rock Clinic budget narrative”.

In a reply to another twitter user, Oke Umurhohwo, that said: “Both Garba Shehu and Tolu Ogunlesi are petty, and their behavior have really been unpresidential. Shame!”, Olayinka said: “It is not only @GarShehu and @toluogunlesi that are petty, most @APCNigeria supporters are empty heads”.
