Bayo Onanuga has doubled double on hurling expletives at the critics of Bola Tinubu, claiming the critics are trying to tarnish the image of his principal with his drug trafficking case.
Onanuga described Tinubu’s critics as “sons of bitches” for calling the president-elect a drug dealer who ought to be in prison
“All those sons of bitches tweeting the hashtags #TinubuTheDrugDealer #TinubuForPrison, your days are numbered. One day, you will face the wrath of law and God for tweeting malicious falsehood about Nigeria’s President-Elect,” Mr Onanuga said in a tweet on Sunday.
The latest tweet adds to the litany of abominable remarks Onanuga, a senior media aide to Mr Tinubu, continue to make against those opposed to the emergence of his boss in the just concluded presidential election.
Since Tinubu was declared the winner of the February 25 poll, some Nigerians have condemned his victory, citing the questionable process of his emergence as well as his controversial past.
The constant criticisms have however been met with pushbacks by Tinubu’s supporters, especially his image-makers.
Last year, the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois released documents exposing Mr Tinubu’s alleged links with narcotics trafficking and money laundering.
The release from the U.S. Court came at a time when Mr Tinubu, a candidate of the governing All Progressives Congress (APC), was aggressively campaigning for the country’s top political job as president.
The 56 pages court documents, a copy obtained by Peoples Gazette, placed Mr Tinubu under intense public ridicule and political onslaught for his role in an early 1990s drug trafficking case in Chicago.
Till date, the two-term governor of Lagos and now president-elect, has not commented on the narcotics dealings even though his aides battle to defend him.
But Nigerians have continued to demand that Mr Tinubu come out clean on his involvement in the drug dealings which saw him forfeit up to $460,000 to the U.S. authorities in 1993.
