“Please try and understand the Fani-Kayode’s: we are humble, peaceloving, accomodating, easy going and respectful people. That is the way we have all been brought up. We do not look for anyone’s trouble and more often than not we turn the other cheek as our bible requires us to do. We are indeed very slow to anger but it should also be noted that, once stirred, we are irresistable in battle. We are natural warriors. We are like a hurricane: once we are forced into a fight, we do not stop. Once we are provoked into a conflict, we do not yield. And other than the fear of the Living God Himself, the word “fear” has no meaning and no place in our hearts. It would therefore be most unwise and a grave miscalculation for anyone to mistake our kindness and our natural warmth for stupidity or weakness.”
