"It's Wrong For The US To Deny Nigeria The Sale Of Weapons" Shehu Sani React

Shehu Sani, who is a Nigerian senator, an author, playwright, and a human rights activist, has taken to his Official Twitter handle to react after the US lawmakers delayed a proposed sale of 12 AH-1 Cobra attack helicopters, and accompanying defense system to the Nigerian military.

According Information gathered from a reliable source, the US lawmakers on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, in a report reviewed by the Foreign Policy magazine, have reportedly delayed clearing a proposed sale of 12 AH-1 Cobra attack helicopters, and accompanying defense system to the Nigerian military, citing the drift of the current government in Nigeria towards authoritarianism and human rights violations, among others.

Shehu Sani, however, has taken to his Official Twitter handle to react.

While sharing on his official Twitter page, he said:

"Visa sanctions is the best step in tackling public officials involved in Human Rights abuses or rigging elections. It's wrong for the US to deny Nigeria the sale of weapons crucial to the prosecution of the war against terrorism. Terrorism anywhere is terrorism everywhere".
