Reacting, she revealed that when she was in active journalism 18 years ago and was setting standards for investigative and human angle stories, this follower was not even born.
Abike added that such statement is a product of ignorance and unbridled stupidity, and it is really a pity to see people thinking in that manner.
She responded, “When I was in active journalism 18 years ago and I set standards for investigative and human angle stories, you were probably not born or you, as usual, continue to wallow in abject ignorance and unbridled stupidity. My last day of Ramadan. I stop here.”
