The last may not have been heard of the ongoing 2023 general elections in Nigeria, especially with regards to the violence and crisis that marred some areas during the Presidential and National Assembly elections. We saw many videos on different social media platforms were voters were being attacked and bullied simply because they supported certain candidates of some other political parties.
One of the victims of the aforementioned is popular Nigerian comedian and skit maker, Lawal Michael Nasiru Bolaji, popularly known as Nasboi, who has come under threats and online bullying by a certain APC supporter who’s equally posing as a political thug. According to the twitter user simply identified as hobay17, he threatened to deal with Nasboi for supporting Peter Obi of the Labour Party in Tinubu’s Lagos State.
He equally asked the comedian to come out of his estate if he’s actually man enough, or that Nasboi should meet up with him at the front of Elegushi Palace the next day.
In one of the threats, he wrote, “your mama, if dem born you well, come out of your estate.”
Further, he wrote, “so you know get mind abi, no worry you f*ck up, you Bolaji Michael dey support Obidient for Tinubu Lagos, no too price ham ooo.”
Meanwhile, Nasboi according to the screenshots of his conversation with the threatening APC supporter, urged him to desist from such act, but he continued with his threats. Which prompted the comedian to cry out by posting both the photo of the young man in question and the chats they had together.
On the other hand, many people who have reacted to the post made Nasboi has assured him that nothing will happen to him as he has committed no crime by supporting the candidate of his choice, while some others urged him to report the matter to the police as quick as possible for the sake of his life.
Sadly, we have had to contend with many issues like this at different parts of the country during this 2023 Presidential election. More worrisome is the fact that it is the masses who have been subjected to all manner of bad leadership and incompetent Government that have availed themselves as instruments of such stupid and foolish acts.
Bear it in mind that even if you end up killing your brother or friends for the sake of any politicians, they won’t still care about you and your plights, rather you will end up in jail for your crimes. So, I urge everyone to play this politics without bitterness.
