Posting on his Twitter handle along with pictures of some of the slain clerics on Thursday, Sani said:

“Imagine a Governor of a State for eight years and these high profile clerics were murdered by terrorists in his state, and he never for once bothered to visit their families for condolence or even speak personally on the tragedies.”

“If I don’t find a word bigger than a ‘bigot’, I’ll coin it.”
