Senator Shehu Sani reacted to the statement by saying:
“Threatening foreigners with Body Bags is not nationalism or patriotism, it’s fascism. They simply want to switch off the lights, close the windows and the doors and count our votes. They are watering the flowers of our democracy with kerosene.”

Another Twitter user said:
“Is “Body Bags” statement not a Hate Speech??? That’s a clarion call to VIOLENCE and it’s sad that it’s coming from a sitting governor of Kaduna State.

When the two Governors from Niger Republic intervened or interfered with the APC Presidential rally, they never ended in body bags. Elrufai simply has a plan!
