He made the comments when he was asked about his tweet in 2012 where he compared the killing of a Fulani with taking a loan that will be repaid one day.

When making clarification about his past tweet, he said:

''If a Fulani man dies in war, it is different. If a Fulani man is arrested by the authorities and convicted, it is not an issue. What the Fulani never forgets is when he is innocently targeted and killed and the authorities do nothing. He will never forget and he will come back for revenge. This is it.''
