Lekki Shooting: You are heartless and wicked, Fani-Kayode Bombs Tinubu
Femi Fani-Kayode, a former aviation minister has accused a two-term former governor of Lagos state and national leader of APC, Bola Tinubu, of being heartless, wicked and cold-blooded over his comment on the shooting of peaceful #EndSARS protesters in Lekki area of Lagos.
The APC chieftain, who condemned the shooting at Lekki Toll Gate, berated youths for what he described as the failure to observe the curfew order of the state government. He added that those who sustained gunshot injuries should be questioned.
Mr Fani-Kayode in an essay asked if Mr Tinubu was attempting to blame the protesters for being shot to death by men of the Nigerian Army.
The eassy reads in part; “The latest episode in your catalogue of atrocities is that children that were protesting peacefully and asking for #EndSARS and an end to police brutality have been slaughtered at Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos under your watch as National Leader of the APC.
“Sadly instead of exhibiting any remorse or displaying any regret for this abominable atrocity, with a sheepish smile and a sneering and jocular tone, you had the sheer nerve and effontry to say nothing other than that you are “still the Asiwaju of Lagos and the Jagaban?”
“Yet what was even worse than this and what shocked and astounded all right-thinking people all the more was that you had the temerity to go on even further to say that the “casualties at the Lekki shooting have some questions to answer!”
“You then asked, “how are they there?”, “how long were they there?” and “what kind of characters were they?”
“How cruel can you be? Not a word of condolence or expression of commiseration to the families of the dead but instead you offered stupid questions and baseless accusations against their wards and children who were butchered in the most brutal circumstances and heartless manner.
“You have no honor. You have no shame. You have no dignity. You have no self-respect. You have no decency. Children were murdered in our streets and this is all you have to say?”
FFK further added that he was not only shocked by Mr Tinubu’s comment, but he wondered once loved and admired him which currently gives him sleepless nights and goose pimples. “How could I have been so blind?”, FFK asked.
He urged the one time Senator to remember he won’t be Asiwaju and Jagaban forever and live a good and impactful life.
