Comic actor, Okon Lagos has taken a swipe at the president of the Dog Lovers Association for calling out record-breaking chef, Hilda Baci and influencer, Enioluwa, over their dog meat delicacy.
It was earlier reported that Jackie Idimogu called out the pair after a video of them trying out a dog meat delicacy went viral.
The lady had berated her for preparing dog meat as a meal as she expressed her displeasure.
Okon who reacted to this tagged the woman as Cloutina, and further noted that she wants to dim Hilda’s shine by inciting Western hate.
He pointed out to the lady that eating dog meat is a delicacy in Akwa Ibom which happens to be where Hilda is from.
Okon added that if preparing dog meat is a crime, then the same argument could be made against other animals which are pets to other people.
In his words: “Who’s this one sef? Ok Madam Cloutina, before you began inciting Western hate on Hilda, you should have first of all know that there is no proof that the meat on that table is dog meat.
Most things on social media aren’t real. Second, even if it is dog meat, Akwa Ibomites and Cross Riverians eat dog meat and there is NOTHING wrong with it. They don’t eat pet dogs, but wild dogs. It’s either one hunted as a game in the forest or the local breeds that are somewhat wild, strayed, and launch indiscriminate attacks on unsuspecting passersby. It’s not an ape that we are talking about here, that is a primate and in the same family with humans but lesser animals.
If it is, then one may make a commonsensical case for cannibalism or something close. It’s a dog and not a pet dog like you are carrying to chase clout with. People eat pythons and other kinds of animals which are pets to many. I’ve seen many Python pets in Florida. So, should a protective movement be flagged off for all animals? Are you vegan?
“Even if you are, what if someone comes with a claim which is arguably a truism, that plants have life and deserve to live and it is cruel and destructive to life to allow it to end up as food just because u are at the top of the food chain? As much as this is a mischievous and selective justice for animals, it is also broad daylight witchcraft to put a clog in someone’s wheel of progress.”
