“Let them shift to Abuja central mosque abeg..we need them there.”
His account was immediately reported to Twitter to be taken down.
Another account @anehi2008 immediately reported to the matter to security security agencies.
Dr Joe Abah also wrote;
I asked why people will go to a mosque and kill people praying. Below is one of the comments to my tweet. I will be reporting the tweet below to the security forces just in case. Please join me to report it to Twitter as well. Thanks.
