Why we think there’s more to Buhari’s ‘snatch and die’ statement

Following the ‘snatch ballot boxes at your own  expense‘ statement by President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, has stirred a lot of controversies.

“I really gave the military and police order to be ruthless… Anybody who thinks he has enough influence in his locality to lead a body of thugs to snatch ballot boxes or disturbs the voting system, will do so at the expense of his own life.”

Although, there are some Nigerians who believe the president was right and giving such strong statement against election riggers is the way to go, there are those who don’t.

To them, the statement passes the wrong message to voters.  They argued that the statement isn’t only a call to jungle justice for election riggers but to instill fear and intimidation in prospective voters, who have no intention to snatch ballot boxes.

  • Buhari is a blunt and honest person. I really like him and will surely vote for him come Saturday. Those who want to commit suicide should just wait till Saturday to snatch a ballot box. My good friends, the Khaki boys will surely make it easy for you to pass on.
