Magaji said: “It’s shameful for such statement to come from Obasanjo. He was president under both military and civilian governments in this country.

"He has a lot of privileged information. If what he said is a privileged information, let him say it. But I think it’s old age that’s disturbing him.

If not old age, I don’t think he should ‎say such a thing. If you look at it, the victims of insurgency are Muslims, and even Fulanis. Before you hear of anybody else being killed, so many Muslims are killed.
