Man Beats His Son To Death In Port Harcourt

Those Wishing President Buhari Dead Are Heartless

Senior presidential aide, Femi Adesina, has lashed out at those wishing the president dead. He went ahead to describe them as swindlers, inhuman, evil, wicked and liars.

Adesina, in a statement, wondered why some people take delight in wishing the President dead.

Citing last weekend’s rumour of the death of Buhari especially in the social media, he said:
“They showed their pernicious hands again last Sunday, and have been on the prowl since then, roaring like a lion, seeking who to devour.

“Purveyors of death they are, and they have killed President Buhari many times over, cloned the websites of international media houses to announce the hoax, but their wishes did not become horses, so they remain stranded, with nothing to ride.

“Between January 19 this year, when the President first proceeded on vacation, and March 10, when he returned, they had announced his demise many times.

“They even created apocryphal images and footages to back up their inhuman claims, but God showed them He was t…
