Fani-Kayode wades into butchered Whale, says we have lost sense of humanity, compassion, decency
“I thought that I had seen it all but this one shocked me and brought tears to my eyes. I wept for the whale and I wept for Nigerians. If you are a whale…
Chief Fwmi Fani-Kayode has condemned the attitude of some Nigerians following washed ashore Whale in Bayelsa state which did not see light of the day.
The former aviation minister, Kayode, on his Facebook page, condemned the killing of whale, said the act made him cry.
Few days ago, a whale was reportedly washed ashore Bayelsan River, which was Butchered to the bone by the residents.
Kayode, while reacting to this, argued the Whale ought to had been saved than making it a meal.
He noted that consuming of the helpless Whale has shown Nigerians has lost sense of compassion, decency and humanity.
He therefore linked the action on hunger ravaging the Nigerian people.
In his words: “I thought that I had seen it all but this one shocked me and brought tears to my eyes. I wept for the whale and I wept for Nigerians. If you are a whale please do not make the mistake of washing up on a Nigerian beach!
“You will be hacked to pieces with matchets by a group of hungry and angry youths, they will carve out all your meat and they will eat you to the bone. In most other countries whales that stray on a beach are treated with compassion and love and are assisted and pushed back into the sea by the locals so that they may live. Sadly in our case it is different: in Nigeria we bludgeon them to death, butcher them, carve them up and eat them. 😭😭😭😡.
“This goes to show that as a people we have lost our sense of decency, humanity and compassion. Hunger has turned us into savages and many in our shores are prepared to attempt to justify it as a consequence of their psychotic, psychopathic and sociopathic disposition.
“60 people were killed at a funeral by Boko Haram two days ago and nobody in Nigeria really cares. It hardly even gets a mention in the local press and the international press gave up on us years ago. That is the level to which we have descended and degenerated to today. Life, whether it be that of human beings or animals, means nothing to us.
“A whale washes up on our shores and within hours it is hacked to pieces to the BONE! Think about that for one minute! TO THE BONE! That is what we have become. And we revel and take pleasure in it and boast about it. I don’t know about you but the whole thing makes me feel so ashamed. It also sends shivers down my spine.
“We have been transforned into a hard, cruel, hungry, vicious and wicked people who have no regard for the life of human beings or animals. No wonder the first and fourth most deadly terrorist organisations in the world thrive with impugnity in our shores.
“I am sure that some misguided Nigerians, excited about the taking of life and the flow of blood, boast about that too! It really is so sad. May God help us.”
