An Islamic organization, Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, has come under attack for demanding that the Nigerian government places a travel ban on outgoing US President, Donald Trump.
MURIC in a statement on Monday asked that Trump be sanctioned along with his key allies for their ignoble roles in the US 2020 presidential elections, particularly the storming of the Capitol.
But reacting, a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode slammed MURIC for issuing such a statement calling for a travel ban on Trump.
According to him, those calling for travel ban should be put in a ‘Monkey cage and shipped to Saudi Arabia never to return to Nigeria’
The former minister on his Twitter page wrote: “Those that say we should put a travel ban on Donald Trump and stop him from coming to Nigeria ought to be tied in fetters, put in a monkey cage, shipped to Saudi Arabia and dumped in the slums of Riyadh from where they must never be allowed to return.
“Grow up and stop talking rubbish!
Meanwhile, Trump has been under heavy criticism after he was said to incited his supporters to attack the US Capitol in a bid to stop the certification of President-elect, Joe Biden’s win.
