Azman Airlines has distanced its organisation from Jamil Abubakar, a member of the Dangote family, 24 hours after he justified the killing of Deborah Samuel by Islamic extremists.
Nigerians, with the impression that Mr Abubakar was an Azman Air staff, launched tirades against the company for employing the services of a perceived religious bigot.
Dissociating the airline from Mr Abubakar, Azman Air released a statement to inform Nigerians that the pilot had ceased to be their staff since 2019.
“PUBLIC NOTICE: Capt Jamil Abubakar is no longer a pilot @AzmanAir; his last flight with us was 22nd Dec 2019,” Azman Air said in a rebuttal tweet.
“We refuse to take responsibility for a comment or view of former staff. The general public should kindly take note.”
Jamil Abubakar is Alhaji Dangote’s son-in-law who is a recent tweet justified Deborah Samuel’s murder.
