Son of Kaduna State Governor, Bashir El-Rufai mocked leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, in a tweet on Tuesday suggested that Kanu be locked up in a cell with a cow after news of the IPOB leader’s arrest broke.
His tweet, in which he tagged Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari, reads
”He should be locked in a cell with a cow, please @MBuhari.”
In another Tweet, Bashir described Kanu as a hooligan, noting that there are people who are displeased with the latest development but are scared to talk.
“There are those that will be upset this hooligan was arrested, but will be too cowardly to express it. Victory for the country. May we all continue to progress in unison.”
His comments, however, have continued to spark outrage, as many Nigerians tackled him for not being constructive in his criticisms. Many opined that Bashir was well-educated enough to avoid being sentimental on such issues while some blasted him, describing him as a privileged one who has refused to make good use of his education
