Bashir, son of Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State, says the leader of the defunct Biafran Republic, Dim Chukwuemeka Ojukwu, was a failed hero.
Bashir said this in a Twitter post while reacting to a comment by one of his followers.
The governor’s son had said Enugu State was the homeland of Ojukwu instead of Nnewi in Anambra State
However, when his error was brought to his notice, rather than apologising, Bashir said:
“Knowing your failed hero’s homeland that plunged misguided idiots into a civil war and ran away is not my concern.
“You do your research and find out his hometown.
“I could care less for the man. And he will forever remain a dent in our history.”
Bashir has been known to be a thoughtless talker and can be unruly on social media.
No wonder a commentator, in a Twitter post, had sometime ago accused Bashir of being a drug addict.
