Legit.ng contacted Sulayman Abubakar who claimed that Kawu was his roommate at UNIMAID. He confirmed the story.

His words:

"We were admitted into the university in the same year in 2005 into part 1 science (100 level). During this period, we were allocated into the same hostel block called Titanic. Since then, I have not set my eyes on him. Just recently, I saw a post on Twitter and I was shocked."

"This is what the society has turned Nigerians to. This is the reason why you see other regions clamouring for a better leader for this nation."


"His condition is bad for a graduate, yes. But come to think of it. How many people are in a similar situation or worse. I commend him for not being idle waiting to be employed by OUR BELOVED GOV'T."
