Following President Muhammadu Buhari’s statement that anybody caught trying to a snatch ballot box during the 2019 presidential election slated for 18th February be shot at sight, Nigerians have been on social media reacting.
He made this declaration during the All Progressive Congress (APC) emergency (Caucus) meeting which took place at the party’s national secretariat, Abuja, today 18th February.
What they are saying:
The interpretation of Buhari's statement is that uniform men can shoot to kill civilians while civilians can also have a mob action on uniform men, all at an alleged instance of snatching ballot box.
This is presidential call for anarchy must be resisted. #APCJungleJustice

Hope the President is aware that he is trying to create more problems than he can already handle. We are battling with security of lives and properties presently as a Nation and we should not add jungle justice to the list.#APCJungleJustice
