Nigeria: 'How Many Bandits Have You Declared Wanted?', Twitter Users Tackle El-Rufai

Reactions have trailed Twitter over the declaration of Governor Nasir El-Rufai that the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) President, Comrade Ayuba Wabba, is wanted.

This is coming on the heels of the organised protest by Unions in Kaduna over El-Rufai's retrenchment of workers from the state's civil service.

El-Rufai's declaration of Wabba as wanted did not go down well with Nigerians on Twitter. Below are some reactions:

You have no right to declare any Nigerian wanted for exercising their fundamental rights. Stop being a tyrant.

You are not okay sir... Sincerely, power shows the true nature of a man. Shame on you. Just note that, Power is transient.

KADUNA UPDATE: Ayuba Wabba & others of @NLCHeadquarters declared wanted for economic sabotage & attacks on public infrastructure under Miscellaneous Offences Act. Anyone that knows where he is hiding should send a message to @MOJKaduna. KDSG. There will be a handsome reward!

With all the damages done by bandits, how many of their kind have gone into your wanted list?
