Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has hit back at the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, over his comments on the Lekki toll gate protesters, who were shot at by uniformed men.
Tinubu, while on a visit to Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Saturday questioned why the End SARS protesters were at the toll gate at the time of the incident on Tuesday, October 20.
However, Fani-Kayode in a Facebook post on Sunday labelled them “stupid questions and baseless accusations”.
He also claimed Tinubu was trying to cover up the “horrendous crimes”.
“How cruel can you be? Not a word of condolence or expression of commiseration to the families of the dead but instead you offered stupid questions and baseless accusations against their wards and children who were butchered in the most brutal circumstances and heartless manner,” Fani-Kayode wrote.
He added that Tinubu was attempting to blame the protesters for being shot to death by “a bunch of genocidal maniacs in uniform who subjected them to crimes against humanity, genocide and mass murder.
“You seek to cover up these horrendous crimes and you are attempting to dishonour and denigrate the dead and desecrate and mock the great sacrifice of these courageous young martyrs for democracy who were murdered in cold blood on the front lines in the field of battle?”
