Popular Nigerian comedian, Bovi, seems to have incurred the wrath of some social media users over his reaction to the ruling of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court in Abuja which threw out Busola Dakolo’s rape suit against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), on Thursday.
The comedian had taken to his Twitter page after the ruling to post a comical tweet about the ruling.
Making reference to Bill Cosby and R Kelly who are presently in US prisons over sexual-related offences, Bovi tweeted:
“Cosby took time. R. Jelly (sic) took time. Is it not penis? It will rise again.”
That didn’t go down well with some female Twitter users who claimed his tweet is implying that another woman would be a victim of sexual assault before the pastor can be arrested and made to face the wrath of the law.
Other social media users, however, took exception to the argument of the ladies, as they argued that the comedian’s tweet is clear enough and meant no harm.
A Twitter user wrote:
How is it that people can’t see the harm in Bovi’s tweet? Women are not collateral damage. His penis rising again means more women will be harmed and that’s unacceptable.

Henry Okelue tweeted in Bovi’s defence:
The attack on Bovi is misplaced aggression and a problem with comprehension. He is saying Pastor Randy will submit to his rapey mind again and eventually meet his waterloo. A criminal cleared of stealing will be caught when he steals again, and he is most likely to.

I know what Bovi said is meant to be comforting but I think it’s terrible that another woman has to go through the ordeal of sexual abuse just to prove that Biodun Fatoyinbo is guilty of his crimes.

It’s not misunderstanding, I didn’t get their point at first too. But when you look at it, they are saying the truth. It took fresh cases of Cosby and Kelly to get caught and jailed. Sadly, it might take same to get Biodun and that’s why they have an issue with it.

“I’m responsible for what I tweet but how you interpret my tweet is your own personal problem.” – Pete Edochie 1876
That’s the “proverb” that best describes this outrage on Bovi ‘s harmless tweet.

If u fail to convict a serial killer, u have no choice but to wait for them to attempt another murder for u to have another shot at conviction.
Likewise thieves & rapists.
It’s neither insensitive nor tone deaf.
It’s unpalatable but sadly true.
Yall need to cut Bovi some slack.

Wether Bovi said it or not, a rapist will most likely not stop after a lawsuit which awarded him damages. The problem here is not Bovi, the problem is the rapist & the justice system. But let’s trade the point for faux outrage. https://t.co/boZTgMzqVf

Its like saying “Everyday for the Thief one day for the Owner”. Nobody wants the Thief to Rob anyone but he most likely will. Bovi doesn’t want anyone raped but it might most likely happen. I also get the outrage from the ladies too https://t.co/pdUeZckPTC
— King Nonny 👑 (@Zaddy_nomso) November 16, 2019
Bovi’s tweet is similar to “99 days for the thief, one day for the owner”
Same thing with “One day monkey go go market and e no go come back.
Buh those who don’t want to understand Bovi’s tweet will be like: pic.twitter.com/ofdW0TcAP2

People will misconstrue what Bovi said so they can find someone to “cancel”. The pesin gan gan wey dey rape go dey where hin dey. Feminist twitter go carry Bovi for head like dandruff. pic.twitter.com/SNN171QqUx

Bovi’s tweet was self explanatory. Fatoyinbo’s already inflated ego will increase now that he was even awarded damages. It’s sad that another woman would have to fall a victim but that’s just the honest truth. He has to slip up for him to be caught and hard evidence to be gotten.
— Brown Sugar🤎🤎🤎 (@yettyclassy) November 16, 2019
The clear interpretation of Bovi’s tweet is “with time the rapist will get caught as he’ll want to try it again”
But the complication is another woman suffering the same ordeal as those before her.

Girl, six, kicked out of daycare for wearing a ‘Black Lives Matter’ t-shirt
For wearing a shirt that had “Black Lives Matter” written on it, a mother claims that her six-year-old daughter was kicked out of daycare.
Deval Brockman, from Russellville, Arkansas, said her 6-year-old daughter named Journei Brockman has been attending daycare at “His Kids Preschool” for six months.
However, she was told last Friday, June 26, she could not return.
Deval Brockman told FOX16 that her daughter’s school called her last Thursday, June 25 and an employee told her that she didn’t “like” or “agree”” with the shirt.
The employee also asked that Brockman not send her daughter to the school wearing it again.
Brockman said she reported the complaint to state officials and she was told that her daughter could wear the shirt unless it contained profanity.
“If I’m supporting something, I’m going to wear it, my child is going to wear it, to help say that our voice needs to be heard,” Brockman said.
Journei Brockman returned to the preschool last Friday, wearing a different shirt with an image of a raised fist printed on the back, which is the Black Lives Matter symbol.
When Deval Brockman picked her daughter up at the end of the day, she was told her daughter was no longer welcome at the school. An employee allegedly said that the shirt was encouraging racism.
“I got very upset. I’m just like are you serious? Over a T-shirt?” Brockman said.
She claimed that a school director also told her:
“I am not going to tell you how to raise your child, but you need to reevaluate how you’re parenting her.”
“It’s not political, it’s everyday life, it’s all over the news. Right is right and wrong is wrong,” Brockman said.
Patricia Brown, director of His Kids Preschool, said in a statement to FOX 16:
“We feel a childcare environment is not a place for a parent’s political views to be addressed or played out, regardless of race.”
African native doctors hold ceremony to unleash voodoo on George Floyd’s killers (Photos/Video)
Native doctors in Benin republic organised a ritual ceremony to get justice for George Floyd from the gods.
The ritual ceremony was held for George Floyd but the native doctors also called for justice for other black people killed unjustly in the United States, including Trayvon Martins, Michael Brown, Botham Jean, and Ahmaud Arbery.
During the ceremony in Dahomey, Benin Republic, a portrait of George Floyd was given pride of place on the altar. Chickens and a ram were killed and the blood was sprinkled around the altar.
Also, during the ritual, George Floyd’s name was mentioned multiple times. His killers were also mentioned as a ‘voodoo hex’ was released on them.

George Floyd: Trump mocks teargassed protesters, says it was a beautiful scene
President of the United States of America, Donald Trump has reacted to the US National Guard using tear gas to disperse Black Lives Matter protesters in Minnesota.
Trump described the use of teargas on protesters who took to the streets in response to the killing of George Floyd, a black American who died last month when a white Police officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on his neck in Minneapolis, as a ‘beautiful scene.’
Speaking at an event in Dallas, Texas, the president shared his views on efforts made by the Minnesota National Guard to restore order.
“It was like a miracle. Just everything stopped. I’ll never forget the scene, it’s not supposed to be a beautiful scene but to me it was. After you watch policemen run out of a police precinct.
“And it wasn’t their fault, they wanted to do what they had to do but they weren’t allowed to do anything but they were running down the street, they weren’t allowed to do what they’re trained to do and they took over the precinct, they essentially burned it down.
“And yes there was some tear gas and probably some other things. And the crowd dispersed and they went through. ‘By the end of the evening… everything was fine and you didn’t hear about that location having problems anymore.”
