The former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has condemned President Muhammadu Buhari’s death threat to ballot box snatchers.
Buhari had made it clear that anyone who tries to disrupt the electoral process will be doing so “at the expense of his own life”.
Speaking during the emergency caucus meeting of the All Progressives Congress, APC, the President said he has given instructions to security agencies to ensure the general elections go on smoothly.
He had said: “Anyone who tries to disrupt the electoral process or carry the ballot boxes will be doing so “at the expense of his own life”.
But reacting, Fani- Kayode who described the statement as ‘disgusting, wondered why a civilian President would order security agencies to kill ballot snatchers.
He tweeted, “I am disgusted about @MBuhari’s orders to his security agencies to kill people for ballot-snatching.
“How can a civilian President, who is supposed to be the defender of the rule of law, speak like this? You don’t kill people for ballot-snatching, you arrest and prosecute them.”
