Odunews.com had earlier reported that Abike Dabiri-Erewa accused the Minister forcefully evicting staff of the agency from its office given to it by the Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC).

Reacting to the allegation, the Minister tagged Abike Dabiri a fat liar.

Responding through a tweet on Saturday, the Minister said:

“THIS IS A FAT LIE FROM HER: The owner of the building @NgComCommission has faulted her lies on their social media platforms. The minister has never given that directives to any gunman. We need to be very objective in reporting. I have never sent any gunmen there, and I have no one.”

The tweet sparked a further reaction from the NIDCOM boss Abike Dabiri as she accused the Minister of treating her that way because she is a woman and even sarcastically doubted the Minister’s PHD certificate.
