A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has called on Nigerians, regardless of the nation’s ethnic divide, to unite and join forces to combat the spate of killings in the southern part of Kaduna State, North-West Region of Nigeria.

Fani-Kayode said the ultimate objective the terrorists and genocidal maniacs “is to divide us on ethnic and religious lines and spark off a bloody and endless civil war that will cost millions of lives.

Fani-Kayode, a chieftain of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), stated this in a tweet post, Tuesday.


He noted that the same terrorists and genocidal maniacs that are behind the killings in Southern Kaduna were the same ‘beasts’ that butcher people in other states that made up the North West Region of the country.

His Tweet post stated, “The terrorists & genocidal maniacs that slaughter the people of Southern Kaduna are the same beasts that butcher the people of Zamfara, Katsina, Sokoto & Kebbi. We must ALL join forces, whether Hausa, Jaba, Kataf, Fulani, Berom, Igbo, Anago, Ijaw or anything else & RESIST them.

“Their ultimate objective is to divide us on ethnic & religious lines & spark off a bloody & endless civil war that will cost millions of lives. This must NEVER be allowed to happen. We must NEVER forget that what binds us together is our common humanity & that WE ARE ONE!”
