Hadiza Isma El-Rufai, wife to Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State, has apologised to Nigerians for her earlier statement, insisting that her son, Bello did not threaten to gang-rape the mother of a Twitter user.
DAILY POST had earlier reported that Bello had stirred controversies on social media after he threatened to gang rape the mother of a Twitter user.
His post read: “This Daddy’s boy has heard your mother’s ability to take dick is mind-blowing. Especially one dipped in Kerosene from Abia land.
“Sounds about fair. Despite the ineptitude he is completing a bridge your Ebele couldn’t. You are stuck with PMB and can’t do sh*t. How’s failed, Daddy? Oh, and tell your mother that I’m passing her to my friends tonight. No, Igbo sounds, please! Tueh.” (sic).
Hadiza, responding to the backlash targeted at her son, said she did not see any threat of rape in her son’s tweet even as she urged everyone to show respect.
However, in a later tweet on Monday evening, El-Rufai’s wife apologised to those who took offense at her earlier response, adding that she does not condone sexual abuse in any form.
She wrote on her Twitter page: “I can see how my tweet may have come across, and I apologise to those who were offended by it.
“I say, once again, that I’d never condone sexual abuse in any shape or form.”
