SocialMediaTrends: Shettima involved with Boko Haram? Nigerians deliberate



The Vice-Presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Senator Kashim Shettima, has been trending since his unveiling, with Nigerians digging into his possible involvement with Boko Haram terrorists.

The Bola Ahmed Tinubu running mate was unveiled on Sunday at President Muhammadu Buhari’s hometown in Daura and has since been congratulated by the senate president, Ahmed Lawan.

Social media has been buzzing as many fingers have been pointed to Shettima for allegedly habouring the mastermind of the 2011 Christmas Day bombing of St. Theresa’s Catholic Church, Kabiru Sokoto.

The bombing, according to media sources, claimed around 40 lives in Madalla.
