The Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has denied calling for violence in his comments about foreign interference.
In a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media and Publicity, Samuel Aruwan, El-Rufai explained that his comment was not a call for violence but rather a powerful defense of sovereignty.
He further explained that he is standing firmly against those trying to divide Nigerians on ethnic and religious lines, and is opposed to violence but firmly committed to peace and harmony.
Governor El-Rufai in an interview on NTA’s Tuesday Live had said that those who attempt to interfere in the internal affairs of the country would return to their countries in body bags.
According to Aruwan, such statements are what one should expect to hear from a patriot.
