I eagerly anticipate the #FreeSamuel hashtag – El-Rufai’s son, Bello threatens journalist over report


Bello El-Rufai, Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s son has slammed a journalist who he said was the last piece of puzzle he was waiting for in his rant which ignited a Twitter storm few days ago.

Tontrends reported earlier that the Kaduna Governor’s son sparked an outrage after he threatened to “pass a Twitter user’s mother to his friends”, a threat many likened to “gang rape”.

Following popular journalist, Samuel Ogundipe’s report about his tweet, Bello has threatened to make sure his lawyers gets to him. The Kaduna Governor’s son who thanked Ogundipe for completing the jigsaw, averred that the onus to prove usage/threat of rape is on the journalist.

He further stated that he is eagerly anticipating a #FreeSamuel hashtag, for the journalist he described as a hired PDP columnist.

Bello tweeted;

Oh @SamuelOgundipe, our hired PDP columnist, you in particular were the last piece of the puzzle. I assure you that my lawyers will get to you to prove the usage/threat of rape. The onus is on you. I eagerly anticipate the #FreeSamuel hashtag. Thanks for completing the jigsaw.

Some Nigerians who reacted, accused Bello of forgetting that power is transient. See some tweets below;
