Former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode has condemned the Nigeria mainstream media, accusing them of been puppets in the hands of the oppressors.
The chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) made this known in a post on his Twitter page on Sunday.
Fani-Kayode wondered why media platforms always give coverage and airtime to backers of Fulani herdsmen, while they allegedly refuse to give voices to those who speak for voiceless victims.
He stated that Nigeria is a nation of quislings and cowards who are incapable of standing up against injustice, tyranny and evil.
Fani-Kayode wrote: “Why is the Nigerian mainstream media always so ready to give coverage, newspaper space and television airtime to those who speak for the Fulani terrorists whilst they always attempt to drown, censor and black-out the voices of those who speak for their voiceless victims?
“The conspiracy of silence that the traditional Nigerian media willfully and actively encourages and supports makes them accomplices in these crimes against humanity.
“In Nigeria, it is a crime to shout out when you are being subjected to genocide, ethnic cleansing and mass murder.
“And it is an even bigger crime to speak out against and criticise those who perpetrate it. Thank God for social media! The traditional media are mainly in the hands of the oppressors and their collaborators.
“If it was left to the traditional media in Nigeria they would tell us that we have won the war against Boko Haram, that the Fulani terrorists were a figment of our imagination and that political correctness, servility, deceit, docility, stoicism, insensitivity to the suffering of others and the acceptance of subjugation and slavery were virtues.
“We are a nation of quislings and cowards who are incapable of standing up against injustice, tyranny and evil.
“We worship our oppressors and tormentors whilst we despise, slay and sacrifice our heroes. No wonder the 1st and 4th most deadly terrorist organisations in the world flourish here.”
