Not like they expressly called the country a zoo, but their posts implied it. Yesterday Senator Shehu Sani wrote on Facebook that the Jackals and Hyenas who have been trying to take over the kingdom will soon be exposed:
“Prayer for the absent Lion King has waned; Until he’s back then they will fall over each other to be on the front row of the palace temple. Now the hyenas and the jackals are scheming and talking to each other in whispers;still doubting whether the Lion King will be back or not. Now the Lion king is asleep and no other dare to confirm if he will wake up or not. Its the wish of the Hyenas that the Lion King never wakes or come back so that they can be kings. Its the Prayers of the weaker animals that the Lion King comes back to save the Kingdom from the Hyenas, the wolves and other predators.”
The wife of the president then responded saying:
“God has answered the prayers of the weaker Animals, The Hyena’s and the Jackals will soon be sent out of the kingdom . ‘We strongly believe in the prayers and support of the weaker animals. Long live the weaker animals, Long live Nigeria.”
Some Nigerians have however expressed their displeasure in them referring to citizens as animals.
Quite a few even alleged that the duo had joined Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), in calling Nigeria a zoo. But deep down we know they were only talking about a few people.
This really just reminds us of Lion King, only that they forgot to mention a Scar.
