Social Media Roundup: IGP’s weight loss

This week, Nigeria’s president Muhammadu Buhari made a joke and many Nigerians didn’t find it funny.

At the airport when the president returned to Nigeria after a 10-day vacation to London, a journalist asked him about the recurring kidnapping on the Kaduna-Abuja highway.

His response was that he believed that the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Abubakar Adamu has been working hard to curtail it because “he’s losing weight.” Watch the video below.

Naira Marley is a Goal
Yahoo is a Goal
Efcc is Goal
Court is a Goal
Possible Prison is a Goal
Freedom of speech is a Goal
But freedom after speech is not a goal
