Naija News reports that Omokri, who was a Presidential aide under the Goodluck Jonathan administration, made this comment on the micro-blogging site, Twitter on Monday in reaction to the ongoing killings in Southern Kaduna, a part of Kaduna State, northern Nigeria.
Omokri said the people Southern Kaduna expecting Governor El-Rufai to protect them is like “expecting satan to protect you from demons.”
Quoting Article 51 of the United Nations Charter, Omokri notified Southern Kaduna people that the Article gives them a right to self-defence, calling on them not to attack but if they are attacked, the people of Southern Kaduna to give the attackers “bullet for bullet.”
The former Presidential media aide tweeted: “Dear S Kaduna people, expecting @Elrufai to protect you from herdsmen, is like expecting satan to protect you from demons. Article 51 of the @UN Charter gives you a right to self-defence. Don’t attack. But if they attack, give them bullet for bullet!”
Dear S Kaduna people,
Expecting @Elrufai to protect you from herdsmen, is like expecting satan to protect you from demons. Article 51 of the @UN Charter gives you a right to self defence. Don’t attack. But if they attack, give them bullet for bullet!#RenosPromiseToElrufai pic.twitter.com/jRx0w9StXY

In a related development, Omokri has alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari is in support of Southern Kaduna killings.
Omokri wondered why President Buhari sent Operation Python Dance to the Southeast over the activities of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) led by Nnamdi Kanu, when the group according to him, is yet to kill anybody as against what herdsmen are doing in some parts of the country.
The former Presidential media aide said Buhari who was the “official Grand Patron of herdsmen before he became President” can stop the killing s in Southern Kaduna if he desires to, adding that the President knows what to do.
