Former Nigerian Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has condemned the killing of children and women in Gaza and called for worldwide anger and condemnation. In a post on his social media handle, Fani-Kayode stated that the slaughter of children and women, regardless of race or faith, should be condemned by everyone.
He questioned the acceptability of infant and child slaughter when perpetrated by certain groups and emphasized that all life and children are precious. Fani-Kayode also expressed concern about the alleged killing of Muslims in Gaza, warning that such actions may lead to a severe and inevitable reaction from the Muslim community.
He urged global condemnation of the violence in Gaza, emphasizing that the barbarity and obscenity of infant and child slaughter should not be considered acceptable based on the identity or affiliation of the victims. Fani-Kayode underscored the need for compassion, kindness, and sensitivity in treating women, children, and vulnerable populations during times of conflict, citing religious teachings that advocate for love, mercy, and justice.
