We all know our politicians love to fight and fight dirty, especially those in the House of Representatives.

This time, our politicians have decided to take their fight from the House to the streets of Twitter! And this round was between Senator representing Bayelsa East Senatorial District, Ben Murray Bruce and Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.
The drama started when Senator Bruce took to his Twitter handle, to condemn statements said to have been made by President Buhari (PMB) in an interview with the UK Telegraph. PMB warned Nigerians to stop trying to seek asylum in Britain, saying that our reputation for criminality has made it hard for them to be “accepted” abroad.

What a betrayed!!!

Bruce, vexed by the President’s statement, tweeted:

He went on to say:

This was in reference to a statement made by PMB in one of the Nigerian newspapers in 2008, where he said that the late former military Head of State, Sani Abacha, did not loot the national treasury, contrary to the general opinion.

He continued:

Then he went there. He made this statement!

He called out a fellow politician! And we all know who that is!

Of course, trust that this politician who assumes that Bruce was pointing at him didn’t keep quiet.

Bruce gave this epic reply.

Amaechi then gave this epic dig.

Which led to Bruce and his admirers sharing videos of him doing soemthing contrary to what Amaechi said.

And in the process got #IamaNigeriannotacriminal to trend. [zkk_poll post=18135 poll=content_block_standard_format_16]
