Naija News had reported Buhari that issued death threats to election riggers and political thugs who may want to subvert the electoral process, especially on election day, saying they would be doing so at the expense of their lives.
The statement by the president had drawn mixed reactions from Nigerians with the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) condemning Buhari’s statement.
In a post on his Twitter handle on Wednesday, Fani-Kayode accused the president of encouraging genocide and murder.
He wrote: “A President that butchers his own people, supports genocide, encourages mass murder and applauds ethnic cleansing is nothing but a psychopath and a sociopath.
“Ordering his security forces to indulge in the extra-judicial killings of his subjects comes naturally to him.”
