A Twitter user identified simply as Lekan is currently being bashed online for claiming that Hauwa Suntai, the widow of former Taraba governor, Danbaba Suntai remarried her late husband’s personal assistant.

Hauwa remarried Haliru Saad Malami, aka San Turakin Malumfashi, who is the Chief Executive Officer, ITBAN Global Resources LTD in June 2019.

The 50-ish Hauwa married  Malami, who is believed to be in his early thirties.

He is said to be the cousin of Turai Yar’Adua, wife of late Nigeria’s President, Umaru Yar’Adua.

But Lekan, who tweets from @tirimisiyu2013, took to Twitter on Sunday to claim that Malami was a personal assistant to Suntai, who died on June 28, 2017, in Houston, Texas, United States following complications from an October 2012 plane crash.

But many Twitter users bashed him for spreading fake news, saying Malami was never a personal assistant to Suntai.

A Voice of America (VOA) journalist, Saleh Shehu Ashaka, also joined the conversation, describing Lekan as a “liar”.
