A ship from Nigeria carrying 7,200 Nigerian Penises impounded in China? – Fani Kayode

According to Fani Kayode a ship from Nigeria trying to smuggle in 7,200 Human penises has been impounded in China.

“A ship from Nigeria has been impounded in China whilst trying to smuggle in 7,200 penises. Hundreds of thousands of Nigerian penises are smuggled into China every year. Nigeria is the worlds largest exporter of penises & this is why kidnapping & ritual killings are rife here.”

“What do the Chinese do with these penises & why are they obsessed with Nigerian ones in particular? This is not joke but a serious question. The Chinese should leave our penises alone & those that procure them for them in Nigeria should be regarded as terrorists & eliminated.”

But According to AFP Fact check, The claim is false; the story originated on a satirical website, and the accompanying photo was published in an article about a pangolin seizure in 2020.

The article was first published by World News Daily Report (WNDR) on March 19, 2021, according to data provided by social media monitoring tool CrowdTangle.

It has been shared nearly 700 times on Facebook and reposted by online news sites including Naija TellThe PodiumGbetu TVTown Crier and Sundiata Post.

This article surfaced about a year after AFP Fact Check debunked a different story from the same satirical website, whose slogan is  “facts don’t matter”.

Furthermore, AFP’s journalist in Hong Kong confirmed that none of the names plaques in front of the four Chinese officials read “Li Wu”, who was identified as the customs spokesman in the satirical article.

As of April 13, 2021, the spokesman for the General Administration of Customs of China is Li Kuiwen, according to Chinese state-owned Xinhua news agency. READMORE
