That Earthquake in Ghana should serve as a warning. Your matter is in the hands of our SANs [Amadioha and Sango]. Touch any building that's occupied by Nigerians again. pic.twitter.com/1K94aJnHEj

Joking with the Earthquake In Ghana is senseless to me. You don't joke with such natural disaster because Armed men in Ghana demolished part of Nigerian High Commission in Ghana with bulldozers. Ordinary Flood in Nigeria, we can't control, and you think laughing at them is right?
