Presidential aide, Bashir Ahmad, has come under fire on the popular microblogging platform, Twitter, for an “insensitive” tweet he shared after the attack on an Abuja-Kaduna train.
Unknown Gunmen attacked a Kaduna-bound training carrying hundred of passengers on Monday Evening. The train reportedly left Abuja at about 6 P.M and it was attacked between Katari and Rijana.
Presidential aide, Bashir, did not release any tweets to address the death and kidnapping of passengers on the train. Instead, he tweeted about a dialogue that Buhari will be attending today.
This angered many Nigerians who took to the platform to call him out for ignoring the pressing issue to advertise a program where the president is the special guest of honor.
Reacting a Twitter user @kevinbrunic wrote, “The bomb blast and kidnapping on Abuja Kaduna train is more important than anything right now to us Nigerians.”
@Fazlurfarah, “Are you aware that terrorists just bombed an Abuja-Kaduna train with 970 passengers onboard??? @BashirAhmaad”.
