According to Sani, the northerners live in fear due to banditry but their governors are more concerned about social media.

”Northern Governors; their kinsmen are being slaughtered daily by bandits & insurgents, their people are daily being Kidnapped & impoverished by ransom, their women raped & their villages are under siege.

”Their people live in fear & funerals.Yet, Social Media is their problem,” he said.
