Buhari's Aide, Bashir Ahmad Using Bots To Attack PDP Members On Twitter by AnonPoet: 9:48am On Sep 05, 2018
Demola Olarewaju, a political strategist and PDP member has raised alarm over planned attacks against his person by President Buhari's Personal Assistant on New media Bashir Ahmad.

In a series of tweets wherein he shared pictures of a planned online attack by a group headed by Mr. Ahmad, Demola advised the presidential aide to rein in bots allegedly belonging to the Buhari New Media Center (BNMC) which Bashir Ahmad heads as National Coordinator. He also called upon a member of the Nigerian President's media team Johannes Tobi to ensure bots created by them stop coming for him, else he would expose "minutes of meetings, letters requesting money, phone numbers, addresses, bank details, planned propaganda etc"


On Monday, the BNMC had announced a list of appointees to various offices across the team which has been tasked by the Buhari administration to carry on its campaign on New media platforms. Some of the key national officers named include Mr. Jubril Gawat (Deputy National Coordinator South) and Abubakar Barde (Deputy National Coordinator North)

In a statement which was released on the group's website, the BNMC identified itself as "an interactive online platform that houses and connects together the various supporters of President Muhammadu Buhari on all social media platforms everywhere they are in the world, providing them a hub to receive credible information on the achievements, successes and the activities of the President Buhari Administration." Mr. Olarewaju's allegations, however, point to a more sinister purpose; the use of bots and online trolls to harass notable political opponents on social media.

Wikipedia describes Bots as a type of bot software that controls a Twitter account via the Twitter API. Bot software may autonomously perform actions such as tweeting, re-tweeting, liking, following, unfollowing, or direct messaging other accounts. They have been used in elections to spread false news and harass social media users with divergent views.

People uses bots. At least experienced social media influencers. Why is that guy complaining? That probably was a survey.

We all receive spam messages almost everyday. You just simply ignore but I think he's making a fuse because it's coming from Ahmed.

He must be a supporter of Saraki or other clueless politicians.

Chai! insults such as these aren't good for a very simple message. We know you have prided yourself as Mr. President's die-heart supporter reason why you should respect people's opinion especially on highly sensitive issues. I am convinced that even the president will not react to the above claim in like manners.

To help you understand the message, the quarrel is that why using bots to attack him? if you are well read and educated and up-to-date, i strongly believe that by now you should know much about bots or better still, consult your browser before doing this. What i am saying here is that bots are of different categories. It is much possible that the bot in question is that capable of maligning. Just to assist you sir-

"An internet bot, also known as web robot, WWW robot or simply bot, is a software application that runs automated tasks (scripts) over the Internet. Typically, bots perform tasks that are both simple and structurally repetitive, at a much higher rate than would be possible for a human alone. The largest use of bots is in web spidering (web crawler), in which an automated script fetches, analyzes and files information from web servers at many times the speed of a human. More than half of all web traffic is made up of bots." {See wikipedia}

As pointed out earlier, the said bot could be capable of maligning vide same authority thus;

"A malicious use of bots is the coordination and operation of an automated attack on networked computers, such as a denial-of-service attack by a botnet. Internet bots can also be used to commit click fraud and more recently have seen usage around MMORPG games as computer game bots...A spambot is an internet bot that attempts to spam large amounts of content on the Internet, usually adding advertising links. More than 94.2% of websites have experienced a bot attack. There are malicious bots (and botnets) of the following types:
1. Spambots that harvest email addresses from contact or guestbook pages
2. Downloader programs that suck bandwidth by downloading entire websites
3. Website scrapers that grab the content of websites and re-use it without permission on automatically generated doorway pages
4. Viruses and worms
5. DDoS attacks; and to wit-
6. Botnets, zombie computers, etc.

- See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_bot#Malicious_bots for more details.

conclusively, it is important to state that Bots may be used on internet forums to automatically post inflammatory or nonsensical posts to disrupt the forum and anger users. Thank you!
