Shehu Sani calls for travel ban on El-Rufai for threatening to ‘kill’ foreigners

Senator Shehu Sani, has called for a travel ban on Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, for threatening to ‘kill’ foreigners.

 El-Rufai had threatened that foreigners who try to intervene in the forthcoming general election would leave Nigeria in body bags.

The Kaduna Governor made the threat when he featured on NTA’s Tuesday Live programme anchored by Cyril Stober.

His statement has since received criticism and condemnation from Nigerians and the opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Sani, however, speaking on the threat by El-Rufai, called for a travel ban on the Kaduna Governor.

The Senator representing Kaduna Central on his Twitter page also urged the federal government to dissociate and denounced such threat.

Sani wrote: “The FG and the ruling party must unequivocally dissociate themselves and unambiguously denounce the threat to murder foreigners;Silence or neutrality on this dangerous and tragic statement is consent.

“Travel ban and appropriate global sanctions is needed here.”

European Union election observers has also reacted to El-Rufai’s controversial statement.
