Fani-Kayode slams Buhari’s minister for describing China’s ‘inhuman treatment’ of Nigerians as ‘half-truths’

Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has attacked President Muhammadu Buhari’s minister for saying that claims of China’s maltreatment of Nigerians in their country was half-truths.

He said the claim by Geoffrey Onyeama, the Foreign Minister was embarrassing, gutless and shameful.

Several video clips showing some Chinese citizens kicking Nigerians out of their hotels and forced into isolation for fear of being infected with coronavirus went viral on social media last week.

The Consul-General of Nigeria in Guangzhou, China, Mr. Anozie Madaubuchi Cyril, was seen in one of the videos confronting Chinese officers and accused them of victimising Nigerians and other Africans living in the southeast Asian nation.

However, at a press briefing in Abuja, Onyeama said investigations carried out by the Federal Government had revealed that reports of alleged maltreatment of Africans in the Chinese city were half-truths.

He said the videos did not reflect the true situation of things in China.

But responding in a tweet on his verified Twitter [email protected], Fani-Kayode wrote:

“The support and ‘defence’ that @GeoffreyOnyeama, Nigeria’s Foreign Minister, provided for China yesterday, even in the light of the barbaric atrocities that Africans are being subjected to in China, was embarrassing, gutless and shameful. Must @MBuhari always lick foreign arses?”
