Femi Fani-Kayode, former Minister of Aviation, has lampooned former governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari for flouting guidelines at the airport meant to checkmate the spread of Coronavirus disease.
Mr Yari was alleged to have flouted the guidelines put in place for travellers at the airport. The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) while condemning the conduct said the former governor assaulted its official who attempted to enforce the guidelines by insisting that his luggage must be disinfected.
The assaulter is said to have pushed down the FAAN official, saying he ought to know that he was dealing with a Very Important Person (VIP). The incident occurred at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport on Saturday 11th July 2020.
In his reaction, Fani-Kayode described Yari as a thug and an animal he will meet one day to tell him face to face whom he is. He said if such had happened when he held sway as Aviation Minister, he won’t hesitate to ruthlessly deal with the former governor and throw him into jail.
“I have always said that ex-Governor of Zamfara state,Abdulazeez Yari,is an animal. He is not only a crooked, corrupt & violent beast but he also spent years bathing in & drinking the blood of his own people by encouraging & actively supporting the activity of killer bandits,” the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain said in a Monday statement.
“Now he has had the nerve & audacity to assault FAAN officials at Aminu Kano Airport who tried to check & spray his luggage with disinfectant & he also stubbornly & violently refused to follow the Covid 19 protocols put in place by the FG on the grounds that he is a VIP.
“I wonder who the hell this filthy animal thinks he is? It is about time that someone takes on this heartless & bloodlusting monster & call him to order? If we ever had a Kleptomaniac, a psychopath and a murderous megalomaniac in Nigeria as a Governor it is this creature.
“The authorities need to cage him before people are hurt, insulted, threatened, maimed, wounded & possibly even killed by him and his boys. He is totally out of control and may well be totally and completely insane. If I were still Min. of Aviation and he tried this nonsense with any of those in my Ministry or parastatals I would ban him from the airports and from flying in Nigeria and if he ever assaulted any of my officials or staff I would have him arrested, chained, detained, prosecuted & jailed.
“The man is a common thug, a notorious bully, a disgrace to Zamfara state, a disgrace to the north and a disgrace to Nigeria. Not everyone can be intimidated by him and it is about time that the FG and the Nigerian people called him out & put him in his place.
“He is not only a crooked,insatiable, greedy,bloodthirsty &murderous beast but he is also a self-serving sociopath &ignorant thug. One day we will meet & I will tell him all this to his ugly face.I can’t wait.FFK is a hurricane &a lion all rolled into one & I DESPISE bullies,” the former minister added.
