Abuja - #TyrantBuhari is gaining momentum on Twitter as Nigerians reacting to President Muhammadu Buhari’s maiden media chat have voiced their outrage following his remarks on former National Security Advisor (NSA), Sambo Dasuki and pro-Biafra campaigner, Nnamdi Kanu.
#TyrantBuhari has been trending since January 2.
Buhari said during his first presidential media chat last week that some political prisoners like Dasuki and Kanu did not deserve bail.
Several court orders granting Dasuki and Kanu bail have been disregarded by the Department for State Security Services (DSS) and the two remain in prison.
The disregard of the court order made the presiding judge withdraw from the case.
While some Nigerians on Twitter hailed Buhari’s toughness against corruption, others called him a dictator and a tyrant who did not obey the law of the land.
