When Femi Fani Kayode came out with blazing guns shooting from all cylinders in 2016, very little did he knew in just 3 years he would be forced to pluck out his brain and put on the table for Nigerians to service, polish and re-install for him to achieve a “Next Level” of stupidity and shamelessness he seem desperate to achieve. The occasion was the elopement of Ese Oruru and her Jigawa lover boy. To fulfill all madness, Kayode went ballistic insulting everybody in Kano from Emir Sanusi, whom Kayode insisted has a case to answer, down to Gwauron Dutse for the simple offense of being a rock in Kano; a city in a region Kayode hates with a passion. In an article titled “Ese Oruru, Emir of Kano and those distorting the narrative”, Kayode wrote thusly:
“All those that are attempting to distort the narrative about the tragic plight of Miss Ese Oruru are evil and we commit them to God’s judgement. The facts are as follows. She is 14 years old and not 18 and she was abducted from her home. She did not leave her home freely or of her own volition. She was cruelly and wickedly carried away and stolen from her parents, family and loved ones and forcefully taken by complete strangers to a distant land that she had never been before on the other side of the country. This is not a love story about two inseparable young people: it is a story about pedophilia, child abduction, kidnapping, human trafficking, slavery, rape, impunity, wickedness and ritual sex and Emir Sanusi has a case to answer. That little girl has been raped over and over again and she may well have aids, VVF or some other strange sexual disease by now.”
Not done distorting the facts of the case, Kayode went further to even malign the revered Emir by insinuating Ese Oruru was even kept in the palace of the Emir for over one year for the pleasure of the respected Emir. To conclude his opinion, he wrote:
“Meanwhile I just watched an AIT video in which 14 year old Ese Oruru’s mother claimed that her daughters abductors said that it was the Emir of Kano himself that ordered her daughters abduction and that she was kept in his palace for over one year for his pleasure. If this is true it confirms the suspicion that the Emir is culpable. If what she has said is true it also proves that the Emir is not only a praticing pedophile but also a very sick man and he must be held accountable.”
That HRH Sanusi did not see reason to drag this fool to court for this libelous campaign is something regrettable even if not my immediate concern. Perhaps, His Highness was of the opinion that Kayode doesn’t deserve his attention coming from the close knit political family of Obasanjo, a family whose patriarch’s commonest hobby was sleeping with his daughters-in-law and ending up in court with his son to sort out a case of obscene “trespass”.
With such a role model, Kayode would hardly understand the price attached to moral decency among normal people outside his randy family. Now the tables have turned and the victim is not Ese Oruru but Kano kids barely out of diapers and shamelessness Kayode is singing a new discordant song. All of a sudden nobody kidnaps for any religion as it was with the 2016 Kayode’s tagged “Islamic kidnapping” of Oruru. It’s now a “human failing not a religious one”. This oaf is simply nauseating and irritating!
Now that Nigerians, including even pompous fools operating with an over bloated sense of self-importance like Kayode, are in complete agreement kidnapping is a social problem which patent belongs to no region or religion, it’s time for government to use the Kano saga to set a very good example out of the culprits to restore sanity and respect to humanity.
