Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has said Africa is getting closer to war and carnage following the wave of military coups in the continent.
In a post via his X (formerly Twitter) handle on Friday, Keyamo said the coups in Niger Republic and Gabon have shown that Africa is gradually sliding into war and chaos.
The former minister added that the threats of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the tensions in the West African sub-region are influenced by neo-colonialists and imperialists.
He said: “With events in Niger, Gabon etc., the threats of ECOWAS and the tensions in the West African sub-region between numerous nations, we are getting closer to that war and carnage by the day.”
