Fani-Kayode Says He Will Never Regret Calling Fulani Herdsmen Tse Tse Fly

share on:

Moments after reaction from the Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission, Chidi Odinkalu, on Chief Femi Fani-Kayode’s satirically lambasted article on Fulani herdsmen, the former Spokesperson, People’s Democratic Party’s Presidential Campaign Organisation on Wednesday said he stood by his call for a ban to be placed on the activities of Fulani herdsmen in the south west, adding that he does not regret describing fulani herdsmen as tsetse flies.

This is coming on the heels of criticism by Odinkalu, who described Fani-Kayode’s statement as a hate speech.

In a new statement, the former Minister of Aviation noted that he was throwing his weight behind Afenifere that called for the ban of herdsmen in the South West. He said that the ban should not be restricted to only a zone, but the whole of the South because of the nefarious activities of the herdsmen.
