Murray-Bruce, in a post on Twitter, stated that President Buhari is also guilty of hate speech.

He wrote: “Use that time, energy and money to monitor killer herdsmen and not Nigerians whose social media ‘hate speech’ brought you to power!

“If you want to know the person who has made the most hate speeches, then buy a mirror.

“We remember the hateful things you said.”
