Former Nigeria aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has described the Nigerian man who confronted Super Falcons players in Austria as a “grubby little foul-mouthed, rude self-hating Uncle Tom and Malcom X called a “house-nig*er”.
It would be recalled that a Nigerian man living in Austria confronted Super Falcons players in their team bus yesterday, blasting them for representing the country amid the troubles being reported in Nigeria.
The man hurled insults at the players for representing the country under President Mohammodu Buhari’s administration. (Watch Video Here).
Fani-Kayode who couldn’t hide his disappointment at what the players had to go through asked why the players were on a public bus in a foreign country.
He questioned why they didn’t have security given the fact that they are women in a foreign land, representing Nigeria.

The first question is why do our Female National Football Team have to travel by public transport in a foreign country? Can’t they rent a private bus? Secondly why do they not have bodyguards and some security given the fact thst they are women in a foreign land and that they are representing our nation. Next is an assertion: no matter how anyone feels about Buhari or Nigeria I think it is despicable for the man to attack and subject our players to such a vicious verbal assault and to insult our country. If he were a foreigner and not a Nigerian he would have been rightly accused of being a racist. He is nothing but a grubby little foul-mouthed and rude self-hating Uncle Tom. He is what Malcom X called a “house-nig*er”. I despise such people. If things are bad at home does that mean every Nigerian must be insulted? Does this animal have no self-respect or sense of patriotism or decency? Things may be tough in our country and we may be going through hard times but no-one has the right to insult, humiliate, threaten, talk down to and treat our people with contempt and disdain. Not even a fellow Nigerian that is stuck abroad! The man deserves a hot and dirty Nigerian sl*p for his impudence and insolence. Pity that none of the young Nigerian men in that bus that were subjected to his foul-mouthed and self-hating rubbish didn’t give him one!
