As always, there is so much going on in the social media world, and it can be hard to catch every story.

“Social Media Roundup” is a weekly roundup of some of the most interesting events that caught my attention in the past week.

Published on Sundays, “Social Media Roundup” will help you stay up-to-date on all the important social media news you should know.

RIP to Victor Ikwuemesi, chairman of the now-defunct Sosoliso airlines who lost his life to coronavirus.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, announced the death of the Chief of Staff to the President, Mallam Abba Kyari on Twitter.

5. The governor of Kaduna state’s son, Bello El-Rufai threatened a Nigerian twitter user based on opposing political views.

The two men clashed after the Bello criticized United States President, Donald Trump, for not doing enough to handle the outbreak of Coronavirus in America.

Bello said, “There is nothing as radioactive as an incompetent leader during a time of crisis. The United States of America is a case in point. A few states in Nigeria too.

Theranos_zer replied “How about the absentee president of Nigeria?

It all went downhill from there:

Bello sent the below Twitter Direct Messages to Theranos_zer:

Truly your mother’s son. Does she still earn by earning 2,019 naira per suck on Azikwe Street, Aba LGA? Tell her to wear mask and gloves while doing it due to this pandemic.” he added in a now-deleted tweet.
