The controversial governor reportedly threatened to send members of the Global Democratic Institutions, who work against the interest of Nigeria, back to their countries in body bags.

The clarification was contained in a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media and Publicity, Samuel Aruwan.
