El-Rufai also threatened that foreign observers who want to interfere in the country’s election will go back in “body bags.”

He said: “Those that are calling for anyone to come and intervene in Nigeria, we are waiting for the person that would come and intervene, they would go back in body bags.

“Because nobody will come to Nigeria and tell us how to run our country. We’ve got that independence and we are trying to run our country as decently as possible and we know the history of those countries that are trying to teach us these things; we have read their history. We also know that in their stages of development they went through these challenges.

“So, please, let’s work together; let’s advise one another but don’t lecture us.”

Moments after the video of the governor’s threat went viral, Nigerians took to Twitter to react to the threat.
