Former Aviation Minister Femi Fani-Kayode has reacted to the claim by the Vice
President Yemi Osibajo that kidnapping in Nigeria is largely exaggerated.
Aynaijang News learnt that while Osinbajo, was addressing some Nigerians during his ongoing visit in New York had reportedly said the ongoing insecurity in the country, particularly kidnapping and banditry were being exaggerated.
However, in a tweet, the former minister described the remark by the Vice President as a “lie from the pit of hell.”
He wrote: “Kidnapping in Nigeria is exaggerated and not entirely new…social media tends to be hysterical about everything – @ProfOsinbajo.
“This is a pernicious, perfidious, insidious, malevolent, repugnant and dirty LIE. It is the mendacity of the century: a LIE from the pit of hell.”
Also, immediate past senator representing Kaduna central senatorial district, Shehu Sani condemned the remark credited to Osinbajo, describing it as an affront on the spirit of the dead.
In a tweet, Sani wrote: “I have a lot of respect for the Vice President but the statement credited to him on killings and kidnappings is an affront on the spirit and sensibilities of the dead and the living victims of this continuous violence.”
