Suleiman, who operated the Twitter handle @Hyelasakda, has deleted his account after accusing Innoson Vehicles Manufacturing, an automobile company based in Nigeria, of selling short-lived vehicles.

In a Twitter thread, the tweep had claimed that Innoson vehicles were bad products, saying the ones he bought and supplied to the office of the Head of Service of the Federation and some other government ministries only lasted for a short time.

“Innoson vehicles are shit (sic). I will tell you that for free. The ones I supplied brand new to the office of the Head of Service and several other ministries didn’t last. The ones my father bought for his farm’s use have all packed up. No be by MADE IN NIGERIA. Is it worth it?” He wrote.

“Go to the Federal Secretariat, Abuja, Office of the SGF, Office of the Head of Service today, you will find abandoned Innoson vehicles littered everywhere. This is why you don’t find their cars on Nigerian roads. Na only Buhari they force govt agencies to buy am.”

With his large following on Twitter, the thread gained momentum as many tweeps retweeted it and it soon drew the attention of the automobile company that prides its products as the “Pride of African Roads”.

In a series of tweets via its Twitter handle, @innosonvehicles, the company responded by requesting him to provide relevant information about his transactions with the company and the products in question to enable it look into his complaints.

In its response on November 29, the company said that it had been making efforts to look into the legitimacy of Suleiman’s claims through its Abuja sales office.

Contrary to the claims however, the company’s Abuja office said it had no knowledge of the transactions Suleiman claimed it had with the company.

Launched in 2007 under the chairmanship of Innocent Chukwuma, Innoson Vehicles Manufacturing produces different brands of automobiles, largely using locally sourced materials.
