Fani Kayode a Nigerian politician, essayist, poet and lawyer, took to his twitter handle in few hours ago where he reacts to the katsina bomb Explosion.

Fani Kayode tweeted:

A bomb explosion has occurred in Yammama village near Malumfashi, Katsina State in which at least six children have been killed. Many others were injured & are in a critical state. I condemn this barbarity & this evil act of terrorism. Only cowards target & slaughter children.

Fani Kayode was a member of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). He was with the opposition's All Progressive Congress (APC) until June 2014 when he returned to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party. Although his family lineage originates from Osun, he was born in Lagos, on 16 October 1960 to Chief Victor Babaremilekun Adetokunboh Fani-Kayode and to Chief (Mrs) Adia Adunni Fani-Kayode. He is an Ile-Ife chieftain of Yoruba descent.

Nigeria's former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has once said that he is not Yoruba. Fani who disclosed this on Twitter while stressing that the word Yoruba is alien to his culture and not known in the Anago language while revealing that the name Yoruba was derived from "Yariba" and that it means "shady and unreliable"

The lawyer who said the Two names that the Fulani gave to southerners: "Yamiri", in reference to SE and "Yariba" in reference to SW. The SE rejected that name but the SW accepted it. The name "Yoruba" derives from "Yariba" and it means "shady and unreliable"

"I reject that strange name and label. I am not a "Yariba" or "Yoruba" but an "Omo Karo Jire" or an "Oduduwan" and my language is not "Yoruba" but "Anago". We are what we call ourselves. We are not "shady and uneliable"(Yariba) and we must not accept names that are given to us by our historical adversaries. He said.
