The Director-General, Media and Communications, Kano State Government, Salihu Yakasai, is under fire for insulting the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II on Twitter.
Yakasai, who tweeted through his handle, @Dawisu, on Sunday, asked the emir to “stop opening his filthy mouth” for making a comment over the abduction of some children from Kano State.
There had been a heated debate in recent time regarding the abduction of some children from northern Nigeria to the South-East where they were given Igbo names and converted to Christianity.
But Sanusi had on Saturday said Igbos should not be attacked but blamed the parents for the incident, insisting that many northern parents had the bad habit of allowing their children roam the streets to beg thereby making them vulnerable to kidnap.
In his response, however, Ganduje’s aide said, “A very reckless comment to make. I wonder if any of his relatives get kidnapped or stolen, he will act the same way. The kids are not almajiris for goodness sake. SLS (Sanusi Lamido Sanusi) should have kept quiet instead of opening his filthy mouth to make such insensitive remarks. Nonsense!”
However, Dawisu and Emir have since been trending on Twitter over the matter, generating over 10,000 tweets as of 2pm on Sunday.
