- Ex-Kaduna senator, Shehu Sani, got more than he bargained for after tweeting that a student who died during the recent Kagara abduction should be immortalized
- Sani tweeted his idea on Sunday and tagged Niger governor Bello and the state government's Twitter handles
- An unamused Niger state government tweeted a caustic response to the former federal lawmaker
Outspoken former senator, Shehu Sani, has been knocked hard on Twitter for daring to suggest to the Niger state government that a student killed during the attack on Kagara should be immortalized.
Shehu Sani had tweeted on Sunday, February 28 afternoon that the northern state's government should rebuild and rename the affected school in Kagara after a young student who was reportedly killed by the bandits when they stormed its premises.
Sani, a former senator who represented Kaduna Central, tagged Niger state governor Abubakar Sani Bello and the Niger state government handles in the tweet.
About an hour later, the Niger state government replied thanking Sani for his idea and wondering why he did not do something similar for his Kaduna Central constituency when he was a senator.
Never the one to give up a good fight, Sani urged the governor to let his impact be felt in Kagara after the abduction incident.
Legit.ng reported on Saturday, February 27 that the students and staff abducted from the Government Science College Kagara, Niger state were released by their abductors.
According to a government official who spoke anonymously, the children were released from a location close to where some abducted travellers were released recently.
