Some Nigerians have taken to social media to react to a thread by David Abdulrazak Atta, a Twitter user, which linked Modupe Odele, Rinu Oduala and Mr Macaroni, three prominent #EndSARS activists, to Atiku Abubakar.
On Sunday, Atta had in the Twitter thread shared screenshots of previous tweets by the three persons wherein they could be seen showing interests in the former vice-president’s political ambition.
Atiku was the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during the 2019 general election.
The thread has since ignited heated controversies on the microblogging platform with a number of Nigerians expressing mixed reactions.
It has also led some of them to further dig up other old politically-motivated tweets made by the trio.
While some users questioned the credibility of the #EndSARS activists, others backed them, arguing that they are entitled to support political candidates of their choice during election.
“…Takes nothing away from the agitation really for me, but indeed it takes some credibility away from this lead agitators,” a Twitter user wrote.
“Hmm… Apply Pressure…. Retweet Aggressively…. So this is the game… So you guys call this a fight back? So disheartening….,” another user wrote.
“Believe this at your own peril! Let them copy the tweet links and post for us. Too much attempted thought control going on,” a user replied.
