Former Vice president Atiku Abubakar has admonished President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) to take responsibility for the increasing rate of insecurity in Nigeria.
He also accused the Buhari administration of fabricating false news through “a faceless international Non-Governmental Organisation” to explain the insecurity in Nigeria.
Mr Atiku was reacting to a report published on Monday by an organisation, Centre for Diplomacy and Democracy, based in Washington DC, USA, alleging Mr Abubakar has a hand in the killings across Nigeria.
In a statement signed by Paul Ibe, his media adviser, Mr Abubakar said such reports could cause further division and instability in the country.
The presidential candidate of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) said his checks indicate that no such body called Centre for Diplomacy and Democracy exists.
