The former Minister made the claim on his Twitter handle on April 12.
He tweeted: “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.”
