“Aboki” Sparks Heated Debate On Twitter




Tobi Adebayo 

The usage of the word “aboki” has sparked a debate among Nigerians on Twitter after lawyer, Dr Joe Abah used it in a tweet on Saturday.

He had tweeted: “When aboki uses a newspaper with your picture to sell suya to you, are you anybody’s mate? Enh? Answer nau!”

Although Dr. Abah apologised in another tweet after he was corrected, the initial tweet degenerated into an argument between Northerners and non-northerners.

A Twitter user, MM Alhaji said the usage of the word “aboki” by non-northerners is equivalent to being addressed with the N-word by a white person.
