Former Aviation Minster, Femi Fani-Kayode, has criticized the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, over his comment on the killing of Funke Olakunrin, daughter of the leader of Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti.
Tinubu was said to have refuted the claims in some quarters that Olakunrin was killed by herdsmen. He had added in his condolence letter to the grieving Fasoranti that it was unfortunate that people are eagerly trying to use the tragedy to advance their political agenda.
But responding in series of tweets on Sunday, Fani-Kayode accused Tinubu of selling his conscience to the North, turning himself into “a slave” to his alleged ambition to become Nigerian President in 2023 and becoming a plague to the Yoruba race.
He wrote: “I listened to Tinubu’s slurred speech and utter nonsense at Pa Fasoranti’s home. He was inconsiderate and insensitive. He was not there to mourn or commiserate with Pa, he was there to mock him, to pour salt in his wounds, to play politics and to speak for his Fulani masters.
“What has the kidnapper Evans or the Igbo got to do with the targeting and assassination of Olakunrin? And why the obscene determination and desperate hurry to absolve the Fulani of this heinous crime? He may not believe that they did it but why would he rule it out completely?
“Does he know something that we do not know? Is he an expert when it comes to assassination, homicide and murder matters? Does he know who the killers are? Why the rush to tell us who it wasn’t? Can’t he at least wait for the police to conclude their so-called investigation?
“Even for a confirmed quisling and desperate serf this time Tinubu has gone too far. Funke has not even been buried yet and he is already pissing all over her bullet-riddled body. Tinubu has sold his soul to the devil and his conscience to the north.
“I make this pronouncement today: as long as Jesus sits on the throne he will fail woefully. He has become a slave to his ambition and a plague to his people. He is a shameless soul and wicked old man who is ready to sacrifice anyone and anything to become President.”
