Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai threatens to kill foreign powers that would monitor Nigeria’s elections. Nasir El-Rufai, on Tuesday threatened that Nigerian forces will kill foreign observers who intervene in the country’s election matters.

He said this in an interview on the National television.

His words:

“Those that are calling for anyone to come and intervene in Nigeria, we are waiting for the person that would come and intervene, they would go back in body bags.”

Wide criticisms and condemnation have trailed the comment of El Rufai who is known to be a bigot and a religious fanatic.

In its reaction, the main opposition party, the People Democratic Party threatened to renege on the peace accord it signed with the ruling party.

Meanwhile, many Nigerians have wondered what the governor meant by sending foreign observers home with body bags, because he and his party men applauded some governors who came from Niger Republic to campaign for their presidential candidate in Kano.
