Nigeria has been overrun by animals. Asides the incredulous stories of snake swallowing millions of naira in Jamb office, monkeys carting away with seventy million naira in senator’s farmhouse, and rats chasing away the president from office, the country is practically becoming a republic of animals as cows appear to be making a strong case against the human community.
No longer do they roam the bushes in search of pastures, or even the villages where they destroy farmlands with their herders raping and killing the farmers, they have made bold to traverse cities where they would hold traffic to a standstill till their business in the area is dusted. And when they feel they could do with some shade, they would enter schools, drive away the students and occupy the classrooms.
Not relenting in their drive toward domination, the cows have staged international show with the bold appearance in Nigeria’s new international passport. With such historic feat, cows have demonstrated that they are on per with humans – If not even greater – in Nigeria’s scheme of affairs.
Watching the power and influence of cows soar, the former aviation minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, reads startling meaning in Nnamdi Kanu’s description of Nigeria as a zoo. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu – the supreme leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra – has for years been referring to Nigeria as a zoo.
Although Kanu’s reference to Nigeria as a zoo was informed by the animalistic behaviour of Nigerian leaders and citizens alike, his good friend, Fani-Kayode, apparently believes it’s somehow a spell, arguing that since Kanu made that reference Nigeria has been overran by cows. In his official twitter handle, the former aviation minister said, “I blame Mazi Nnamdi Kanu for what has happened to us. He called Nigeria a zoo and ever since then we have been overwhelmed by cows. There are cows everywhere! Cows on our streets, our farms, our cities, our homes, our passports and in the bedrooms of our leaders! Lift this curse!”
Apparently, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode believes Kanu’s word has some sort of magical powers and is calling on his good friend to reverse the curse.
