The incident that led to Deborah’s death suddenly came up on Twitter after a comment attributed to Peter Obi regarding the power of Whatsapp BC (broadcast message).
Somehow, talks about Deborah Yakubu’s trended, her killing arguably started from a Whatsapp conversation that later went viral and eventually ended sadly.
The Twitter conversation centred on the power of a broadcast message, especially those discussions around topics like religion, ethnic divide, and fraternities, among other sensitive areas.
Tweeps started expressing different views regarding the effectiveness of the social chatting platform and what negative implications the misuse could attract if not utilised carefully.
Ifeanyi Odogwu tweeted that people underrating the power of the chat broadcast are mere charlatans looking for attention.
|Deborah was killed untimely because of some WhatsApp BC, and you’re insinuating that this kind of evil message should not be given a thought. Instead of attacking those who are promoting ethnic division, you’re here talking rubbish.” He added.
