Buhari’s Aide Calls Nigerians ‘Animals’ & ‘Mad’ Over Naomi Campbell’s Visit

Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Digital/New Media, Tolu Ogunlesi, has described Nigerians as animals for ‘slandering Naomi Campbell’.

Campbell, a supermodel, had shared a tweet alongside several photos with Buhari at the Eko Atlantic City launch.

The pictures of Buhari with the Super Model stirred up controversies on the social media.

Reacting, the Presidential aide recalled that Naomi had met late ex-South African President, Nelson Mandela more than once.

He wondered why “some of you animals are slandering her.”

He, however, took to his social media Saturday morning to apologise for the comment.

He wrote: “Naomi Campbell met Nelson Mandela more than once. He hugged her, called her his ‘honourary granddaughter’.

“She visits Nigeria for a fashion festival and meets President @MBuhari, and some of you animals are slandering her. YOU’RE RAVING MAD WITH NOBODY TO TELL YOU.

“Synonyms for ‘animal’ include brute, beast, monster, savage, devil, demon, fiend, villain, barbarian, ogre, according to the Oxford Dictionary.”

Following lashes from Nigerians, he added on Saturday morning, “I’d like to clarify. I would NEVER describe/think of Nigerians or those who disagree with me, as ‘animals’.

“My comment specific to those who thought it appropriate to denigrate/“slander” Naomi Campbell.

“Tweet should have been worded clearer & less provocatively. Lesson learned.”
