The former Minister for Aviation Femi-Fani Kayode has lashed out at the Minister for Defence for calling Nigerians cowards for not defending themselves whenever bandits attack their communities.
The Minister for Defence reportedly made this remark yesterday in his reaction to the kidnap of Kangara students in Niger State.
But reacting in his Twitter handle, Fani-Kayode berated the Minister, reminding him that it is the duty of the Government to defend Nigerians.
Fani-Kayode said: “The Defence Minister says Nigerians are cowards, that they always run when attacked by terrorists & that they should defend & protect themselves.
“Does he know that it is HIS job to protect the people & he failed?
Equip every Nigerian with an AK 47 & see if they will still run.
