On Tuesday, Fani-Kayode posted a picture of Melaye consuming soaked garri, a granular flour made from cassava.
“This is Dino Melaye drinking gari when he was still struggling,” Fani-Kayode wrote.
“You can take a man out of the jungle but you can’t take the jungle out of a man! This clown is real jungle!”

In response, Melaye posted the same photo, explaining that he uploaded it online in 2010 and that he has never hidden the fact that he is from a “poor background”.
“FFK l posted this picture myself in 2010 as a member of House of Reps showing how much l like garri Ijebu,” Melaye wrote.
“I have never hidden the fact that I am from a very poor background. I am proud of my past, my present and my future. Won 3 National elections and have a second address.”
Melaye also retweeted a video wherein Rotimi Amaechi, former minister of transportation, spoke about Fani-Kayode when he was minister of aviation.
“FFK Collected N2billion from Rivers State and used it for DRUGS,” Melaye wrote to explain the video.

The former minister had posted a video of Melaye in 2019 when he was arrested by the police for illegal possession of arms.
Days ago Melaye and Fani-Kayode were engaged in a verbal altercation over the crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
