Femi Adesina, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari has noted that the person who leaked his principal’s draft speech hours before his last nationwide broadcast has been caught.
Adesina made this known in a piece titled ‘Enemies of the State’.
Recalls that a few hours before Buhari delivered his speech, a copy was already in circulation on social media.
Femi Adesina said the person was successfully traced and is now being made to regret his action.
Adesina wrote: “If the person that leaked the unedited draft of the broadcast had access to more sensitive national documents, he would do the same thing. If he cottons on information that could sell Nigeria to the enemy, he would gladly do it. Thou art in the midst of foes, watch and pray.
“Igbo people speak of the proverbial lizard that ruined his own mother’s funeral. That was what the hidden hostile hand did. But he forgot that in these days of technology, almost everything leaves a trail. Before the end of that evening, computer evidence had narrowed down the suspect, and he was already answering for his evil action.”
