This is how confirmation bias works. A young man makes a few outrageous comments among other things. He attracts an audience and many thousands of trolls. No one takes him as their leader and there are many more with more followers who are genuine fans. Someone starts a rumour...
...that this young man is the chief influencer of Arewa Twitter and this rumour going viral makes many many more thousands flock to his handle to artificially prop him up as what they believe him to be. The young man starts getting noticed by a few people with money and power...
...The young man wisely uses this newfound recognition to raise funds for charitable projects. He gets more popular and promotes his apparel to make a living. He still lives modestly while most of his friends also do so, just trying to get by and have a bit of fun...

NIGERIANS WON THIS: The last 4 weeks must have been a difficult period for @CNN @StephanieBusari @nimaelbagir as a result of the massive push back by thousands of Nigerians over their role on #LekkiLies but don’t forget,those two foolish girls were part of the whole plan to burn
Nigeria,they were part of the treacherous IPOB/PDP brigade that plotted the failed insurrection. @CNNAfrica don’t make clarifications,it must have been with a heavy heart. Look @StephanieBusari was not a journalist on 2010,she was a protester! The tweet of 2310 was deliberate to
burn Lagos and destroy the country the way they did Libya and Syria. The tweet they are trying to deny now is specific: 38 people were killed/when the military opened fire/on peaceful protesters! as at 201020,the only place where the military “opened” fire in Nigeria was Lekki. ImageImageImageImage

2. with the real truth.
-In 2008 following a 2007 UN Special Reporteur on torture against the @PoliceNG, with SARS being most prominent the FG set up a Presidential Committee to propose REFORM for the Nigeria Police. The report never saw the light of day as usual.

- In August 2018, then Ag. President

#LEKKILIES: We Lie2Ourselves 2Much in NAIJA. There is No Sector Today That Can Mop up The Millions of Unemployed, Uneducated, Untrained & Angry Youths Like Agriculture. When @MBuhari Said Let us All Head 2DFarms You Ridicule Him. The Only Technology in NAIJA is People & Land.
When We WAN Begin us Them. The USofA Developed Via Agriculture, Manual Labour For That Matter, Una Don Forget Slavery and Colonialism So Easily? The West & UK in Particular Was Developed by Agriculture. The Chinese Cultural & Economic Revolution Was Foundationed on Unskilled &
Unmechanised Agriculture. Why Do We Have So Many Educated Illiterates With Little Knowledge on How Nations Grew? How We WAN TAKE WELL? Every State & Local Govt Must Know That The Only Security WE all Can Get is a Population Engaged & Active in The Cause of National Development.
