Senator Akpabio, Sahara Reporters lock horns on Twitter (READ)

An epic war of words erupted on Tuesday night between former governor of AKwa Ibom state, Senator Godswill Akpabio and New York-based news outfit, Sahara Reporters.

The rift started when the news outfit- through its Twitter handle- alleged that Akpabio has links to the embattled Lekki Gardens which is under probe by the Lagos state government.

A building collapse in Lekki Gardens, had last week, resulted in the deaths of over 35 people in Lagos.

Akpabio, whose election was erroneously reported by the news outfit to be declared void in December 2015, was incensed by the new bout of accusations.

At this point, Sahara Reporters launched an all-out attack at Akpabio- who had proven that he wasn’t going to lie low and take the flak.

Akpabio’s media team then explained why it opted to go head to head with the news outfit as opposed to their culture of silence.

But Sahara Reporters was not having it.
