Some Nigerians have expressed anger over the use of animal metaphors by wife of Nigeria’s President, Aisha Buhari, and the Senator representing Kaduna Centtral in the National Assembly, Shehu Sani, in describing the power play around the State House in recent times.

predators will be put to shame.”
