Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has triggered serious backlash
for the statement which many have since argued fell beneath what is expected of someone of his status.
"Sometimes a very educated person speaks and you are in awe as to whether this person is really educated or just plan clueless, how can a celebrated lawyer like Femi Fani Kayode claim the herdsmen meat are already built for ritual purposes. This is what I consider the height of defamation and slander! I can never agree with this man's point of view and statements like the one he made below, reinforces my stance, one tweeter user said.
Fani-Kayode's tweet: "I stopped eating cow meat when I learnt that the herders have sex with the cows before they are sold and slaughtered for their meat. This is done for sexual gratification and ritual purposes. The meat is charmed. That is why herdsmen NEVER eat cows: they eat goats and chicken. "
