In other news, following President Buhari's speech on the night of October 22, many Nigerians have now resorted to making jokes and bants on social media over the president's perceived lack of sympathy for the country and the lives lost.
Well, it appears Abdulhakeem Seyi Gbangbola is not pleased with the attitude of celebrities and other Nigerians. He took to his Instagram page to blast such people making a joke out of the #EndSARS crisis.
