Some Nigerians have continued to express anger at the recent threat by President Muhamadu Buhari to clamp down on enemies of Nigeria, who according to him have triggered the current unrest ravaging the entire nation.
It was reported that the President on Tuesday, in a statement issued by his spokesman, Femi Adesina said those who want to destroy his government will receive the shock of their lives as they will be treated in a language they will understand.
Buhari, who spoke while receiving a briefing from Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Mahmood Yakubu, over the recent attacks on the commission’s facilities in the South-East said those sponsoring the attacks are aiming at destroying the image of his government.
According to him, “Whoever wants the destruction of the system will soon have the shock of their lives. We’ve given them enough time.”
“I received a briefing today from the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, on the series of attacks on their facilities nationwide. These attacks are totally unacceptable, and we will not allow those behind them to achieve their evil objectives.

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) swiftly responded to the President’s warning asking him to stop trading blames but should rather face the security challenges bedeviling the country.
National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, made the assertion on Tuesday during an interview.
Similarly, a Nigerian socio-political activist, Aisha Yusuf said the statement was a threat of civil war against the people of the South-East.
According to her, all Nigerians have equal rights and should be treated equally.
She made this known in a tweet on her verified Twitter handle on Wednesday.
“My name is Aisha Somtochukwu Yesufu #IAmIgbo.
Any threat to the Igbo people is a threat to me.
An attack on the Igbo people is an attack on me.
I condemn the 1967 threats from President Buhari to the Igbo people
No Nigerian is more Nigerian than any Nigerian”, she tweeted.
Here are few of the reactions on Twitter;
@Donteewrites: On a day like this, I shed a silent tear in memory of Yinka Odumakin, he would have responded to Buhari’s threat to Igbos even though he was a Yoruba man, he was such a pure Nationalist. Odumakin is a man of courage! Rest on Comrade.
@General_Somto: As Usual, the five Idiots parading themselves as Southeast governors won’t even respond to the threat by president Buhari to start another genocide against the Igbos. These so-called Igbo Governors/Leaders are the main problems we have in the South East. incompetent Fulani slaves!
