The Minister had tweeted: “Nigeria stands with the world against terrorism and extremism. Heartfelt condolences to the families of victims of London bridge attack.”
Firing back, Fani-Kayode lamented that the Minister was consoling another country while Fulani herdsmen kill innocent Nigerians on a daily basis.
He tweeted: “U say Nigeria stands with the world against terrorism whilst ur govt. supports and protects Fulani militia terrorists in Nigeria.Shame on u!
“What London suffered yesterday is the barbarity that Nigerians suffer from BH and Fulani militias everyday. Stand firm and stand strong UK!”
Meanwhile, British Prime Minister, Theresa May has reacted to the attack, saying it’s “time to say enough is enough”
May said the people must “deprive the extremists of their safe spaces online” and that technology firms were not currently doing enough.
“We cannot allow this ideology the safe space it needs to breed – yet that is precisely what the internet, and the big companies that provide internet-based services provide,” Ms May said.
“We need to work with allies democratic governments to reach international agreements to regulate cyberspace to prevent the spread of extremist and terrorism planning”.
