A tweet from a handle credit to ex-Nigrian footballer, Victor Ikpeba surfaced yesterday via @IkpebaOfficial saying, “Even if Buhari presents NEPA Bill as certificate, I will vote for him. E don reach that level.” The tweet was a major trend and virtually everyone in the social media circle must have been aware of the tweet which also drew different reactions from supporters of PDP and APC.
Now, another Twitter handle @V_Ikpeba has denied the statements in a series of tweets that reads: “I just want to state clearly that the recent trending statement (s) and tweets was not made by me, VICTOR IKPEBA. But rather by an imposter(s),I also want to use this time to again Officially announce that my Twitter Handle is @V_Ikpeba.” The new Twitter handle, @V_Ikpeba announced as the authentic, has just a little over 2,000 followers.
My qualm is this: Did he deny his tweet and handle because of the reactions drawn (means he has no balls, despite playing ball in the past) or was his account truly hacked, and he didnt bother to make it public until a controversial tweet was public?
Please what do you think?
