Former minister of Aviation and presidential aid, Chief Femi Fani Kayode says that for the National Secretary of the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Mr Saleh Alhassan to get on the national television and denigrate the people of the South West without any fear of sanction from the Federal Government or any other official quarter means that the entire country is being run by a bunch of bloodthirsty and vicious terrorists and savage cattle-rearers whose intentions are to push people into a second civil war.
Femi was reacting to the statement by the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore herdsmen group, that the support for the South- West security outfit, Amotekun, shows how primitive Yoruba people are in politics.
The statement by National Secretary of the group, Alhassan Saleh, during a Channels Television ‘Sunrise Daily ’ program on Monday, quickly reads in part;
“It is not blackmailing. Unfortunately, with a very strong apology to my South- West friends, despite the education of the Yoruba people, they still remain the most primitive in terms of politics.
“They are not tolerant of the opposition and if you allow them to have an ethnic army, definitely there will be fear from Nigerians.”
“He said if Amotekun is allowed to see the light of day, worse may happen. “We know what happened in Lagos during the last elections. The Igbos were denied voting and the oba even threatened to throw them into the lagoon.
Chief Femi in response said: “I listened to the National Secretary of Miyetti Allah on Channels Television yesterday and I am convinced that he needs to be taken to Prophet T.B. Joshua’s SCOAN Church to get deliverance from the spirit of insanity, bloodlust, arrogance, and delusion. The man is sick in mind, body, spirit, and soul.
“He is the quintessential barbarian: unlettered, unruly, ugly, uncouth, unconscionable, foul-mouthed and incapable of reigning-in and controlling his primitive and sociopathic passions.
“For such a creature to get on national television and denigrate the people of the South West without any fear of sanction from the Federal Government or any other quarter means only one thing; that the entire country is being run by a bunch of bloodthirsty and vicious terrorists and savage cattle-rearers whose intention is to push us into a second civil war.
“It is time to not only ban Miyetti Allah but to also arrest all its leaders, bring them to justice and send them back to Futa Jalon and Futa Toro.
“For those that have blood on their hands to have the nerve to call the sons and daughters of Oduduwa “illiterates” is a step too far. We shall not stand by idly and allow them to insult and denigrate us and we shall no longer take their insults without an appropriate response.
“Gone are the days when we will simply turn the other cheek. That is what Amotekun is all about!”.
