A Nigerian man identified as Ifemosu Michael Adewale took to social media to share photos of a community in Abuja with no public water.
In the photos that were shared on Twitter, people of Durumi could be seen fetching and drinking water from a dirty stream.
Ifemosu captioned the photos:
"This is not Somalia, this is Durumi in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory of Nigeria - they have no real public water and some resorted to this dirty stream for their water supply. #BuhariMustGo."
Tweeps soon flooded the comment section of the post to share their thoughts.
"A few kilometres from here, there are mansions worth millions of dollars. Nigeria is an evil enclave."
"Abuja where we have 109 senators, 360 members of house of representatives, ministers, President & VP. It's disgusting, it's shows the kind of leadership we have had over the years."
It should be noted that the Nigeria Customs Broadcasting Network had on Thursday, March 25, informed the general public that Abuja residents were facing scarcity of water as a result of the current repair on the trunk line at the Lower Usuma Dam water treatment plant 3 and 4.
