The war of words between former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode and the founder, Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, is over Amotekun, the security outfit set up by Governors of the South West. It was over the position of Akinnola that Amotekun was anti-Muslims.

It was Fani-Kayode who fired the first salvo that Ishaq Akintola “is a traitor to the people of the South West and a dangerous enemy of the South. His name is Judas! Not only is he a gutless slave to the Fulani but he is also a disgrace to Islam.

“He should ask his owners and masters why they never allow Oduduwan Muslims to lead in prayer even though Islam got to the South West 400 years before Usman Dan Fodio set foot in northern Nigeria.”

Then Akintola reacted like a wounded buffalo! He wrote: “Fani-Kayode called Ishaq Akintola a traitor. ‘Traitor’ in what matter? That is terminological inexactitude. Somebody must betray in a matter over which you have all agreed before you can call him a traitor. What did we agree on? Who did we betray?

“Did we ever agree together on Amotekun? Did you ever carry the Muslims along? How can we be traitors in a matter in which we were never taken into consideration? How can we be traitors in a matter over which we never sat down together to take a decision?

“Did we Muslims sit down with the Afenifere or any group and agreed that we should form Amotekun? Can you shave our heads in our absence? Can you defecate for us? Must you eat for us when we are the ones who are hungry? Will that take our hunger away?

“Can you drink water for us when we are the ones who are thirsty? Fani-Kayode must be reasonable at least for once. Femi Fani-Kayode has forgotten history. We pity him. Does he think the Yoruba have fallen victims of general amnesia?”

According to Akintola, Fani-Kayode should not have been the one using the word ‘traitor’ in reference to any son of Oduduwa.

“Talk about kettle calling pot black. Well, now that he has asked for it, we will let him know that when a child rejects pounded yam in the evening, the elders will narrate stories to him

“We have a question for Femi Fani-Kayode: Who were the Yoruba politicians who betrayed the Yoruba? Chief Remi Ade Fani-Kayode or Chief Obafemi Awolowo? Again, who betrayed the Yoruba people and sold them to the North? What role did Fani-Kayode play in that tragedy? Remember?

“If Fani-Kayode (Snr) aided and abetted the subjugation of the Yoruba to Northern political hegemony, how can Fani-Kayode (jnr) brazenly call Akintola a slave of the Fulani? Is this not a manifestation of addiction to lying and an incurable phobia for anything honourable?” He asked.

Akintola continued: “Fani-Kayode claimed Hausa Muslims cannot pray behind a Yoruba Imam. Fact check: Hausas pray regularly behind a Yoruba Imam (Shaykh Ahmad Onilewura) at the National Mosque, Abuja. When will Fani-Kayode stop lying? Your divide et impera gimmick has failed.

“We advise Fani-Kayode as a former minister to learn how to use parliamentary language, at least in public. Unrefined, uncouth and gutter vocabulary should be reserved for area boys. Or are we back in the days of Fani-Power? Those were days when anything goes in politics.”

    I believe the time has come for the Yoruba nation to rise up against these virus of a tribe called fulani,they don’t belong here. They hate peace and lack respect for mankind so the need to send them back to their useless ancestors

    This guy can spoke big English but he is almost dumb

  • Abolaji says:

    I have been saying it. There is no way someone will not remind Fani Kayode of who is father really is/was! Whenever the man shouts betrayal, fulani slave/master, i always shakes my head knowing fully well he himself is a Fulani slaves son and Uthman Dan fodios conquered slave.

  • mike says:

    First and foremost alhaji akintola should not have answered the bastard we all know where he belongs like his father but at the same time amotekun is not the idea of christian or Muslim or afenifere etc. It was and idea of governors of the Yoruba states which comprises the christian and Muslim.except if the alhaji has another agenda

  • LordRaph says:

    Religious matters shouldn’t be discussed in this aspect at all.
    Only God knows the future for Nigerians.

  • Ayegbusi Abdulfatai says:

    Nice one Akintola. Teach him history. The son of a betrayer calling someone a betrayer. Nonsense.

  • Ben adedara says:

    You are Yoruba first before you are muslim or Christian. Any Yoruba who is working against the general plan of the Yoruba nation is a traitor, be he Christians or muslim.

  • Ahmed says:

    It’s about security and safety of the people not about religion… must we always use religion as an excuse?
