Twitter Account Of President Buhari’s Daughter, Zahra Was Hacked – Presidency

share on:

Apparently Twitter account, @Zahra_Buhari who many know as belonging to one of the daughters of President Muhammadu Buhari has been taken over by hackers, Presidency says.

This comes on the heel of malicious comments from the account targeted at some African leaders.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday by President Muhammadu Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, the offending handle had stopped being her own for a long time since it was compromised by hackers.

He said the clarification had become imperative in view of the enquiries by a few foreign missions on the raging online controversy about the unsavory comments against the foreign leaders.

Shehu, therefore, maintained that Tweets by this handle, were not her own and should be disregarded and considered as the work of hackers seeking to cause mischief between Nigeria and other friendly states.

According to him, Zahra’s authentic handle is @ZmBuhari and any handle other than this on Twitter, should be considered as fake and therefore fraudulent.

The statement read, “The attention of the Presidency has been drawn to unauthorized and unexpected Tweets by an account falsely linked to Zahra Buhari, one of the daughters of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“Following enquiries by a few foreign missions on the raging online controversy about unsavory comments against some foreign leaders purportedly made by her, we wish to state categorically that Zahra is indeed on Twitter but the offending handle @Zahra_Buhari has stopped being her own for a long time since it was compromised by hackers.

“Tweets by this handle are therefore not her own and should be disregarded and considered as the work of hackers seeking to cause mischief between this country and other friendly states.

“Zahra’s authentic handle is @ZmBuhari and any handle other than this on Twitter should be considered as fake and therefore fraudulent.”
