The President also threatened to deal with those responsible in the language they understand.
“Insecurity in Nigeria is now mentioned all over the world. All the people who want power, whoever they are, you wonder what they really want,” he had said.
“Whoever wants the destruction of the system will soon have the shock of their lives. We’ve given them enough time.

“Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand.
“We are going to be very hard sooner than later.”
Nigerians on the platform had expressed outrage over the statement by the President.

Reacting to the development on Thursday, Sani said Buhari should open Tik Tok or Snapchat account to continue to shock Nigerians.
“Baba should just go to Tik Tok or Snapchat and continue to shock,” he wrote.
