President Muhammadu Buhari‘s Personal Assistant (Social Media), Lauretta Onochie is facing backlash on social media for a tweet which has been described as insensitive.
A Twitter user @cbngov_akin1 had announced that Governor Ayo Fayose‘s media aide, Lere Olayinka lost his mother on Thursday, February 2nd 2017, and Lauretta, using the handle @laurestar quoted the tweet saying: “May her soul rest in peace. Now she’s free from the shame of what her son who works full time for
#CorruptionFightingBack did. Sad.”
In another tweet, the presidential aide said: “Stop bringing shame to your families & sending them to their early graves like Fayose’s Aide did to his mother. But we now defend evil, oya!”
Nigerians criticised the tweets, describing them as cruel and a mockery of the dead.
