Sahara Reporters, one of the most controversial Nigerian online news publications is sassy and quick at dropping receipts.

They come for political figures mercilessly with their brutal headlines and articles.

While some Nigerians have called for their heads..

They recently threw a jab at former Governor of Akwa Ibom state and current Senate minority leader, Godswill Akpabio.

The tweet claimed the senator was linked to the ownership of the collapsed Lagos Lekki Gardens which resulted in the loss of 31 Nigerian lives.

Because it’s clapback season, the senator sharply came back for them…

Followed by massive,


Throwing of shade…

With a dash of curses.

@SaharaReporters As long as God is on the throne, you will be disgraced in this nation. God will expose you in the end.

But why is the senator bringing God into this matter?

@SenAkpabio @SaharaReporters please stop disturbing God.

If it were God of the old testaments…


If I didn’t serve in Uyo, I would have believed Akpabio is an angel. All that allocation for a small state, dude is a fraud.

If his hands are really clean, he should kuku sue them for defamation of character.
