Christians reacted to his insensitive, irresponsible and offensive saying about Christ, and his attack on the sensibilities of Christians globally, which betrayed his his lack of respect for our Lord Jesus Christ and obvious hatred for Christians.
His reply which added insults to the injury includes "I must say I am taken aback by the extent of desperate misrepresentation of what was an innocuous attempt to show the godlessness of the Jonathanians to denigrate anyone that dares to ask them to be accountable," "To those who were genuinely offended by the retweet, I apologise.

It is therefore absurd for any Muslim believer to disrespect Jesus Christ," he added.
