Omokri, in the petition, accused El-Rufai of being a threat to the peace and security of Nigeria.‎

He specifically noted that on December 3, 2016, the governor admitted that he paid herdsmen who had been accused of killing several persons.

Omokri added, “Since that admission, there has been an intense escalation of the killings of mostly Christians in Kaduna, and on August 25, 2020, suspected herdsmen abducted seven schoolchildren and their teacher from Prince Academy, in Kaduna.

“They have not been seen or heard of since then.”
