Kogi: Many feared dead as tanker explodes in Lokoja

A petrol tanker has exploded Wednesday morning in Lokoja, the capital of Kogi State.

The king of satire on US television is trolling US Vice President Mike Pence by spoofing a book about his family’s pet rabbit, making the bunny gay and trumping the original in the bestseller lists.

Not only does Pence pet Marlon Bundo have his own Instagram page, but since Monday Americans have been able to read all about him in new children’s book “A Day in the Life of the Vice President.”

Written by Pence’s 24-year-old daughter Charlotte and illustrated by wife Karen, the hardback shows the world of Pence through the eyes of little Marlon Bundo.

But British satirist John Oliver appears to have had the last laugh, coming up with his own version to highlight the conservative Pence’s opposition to gay marriage.

He too has published a children’s book featuring the vice presidential rabbit — “A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo.”

Except this time the boy bunny falls in love with another boy bunny, before the two get hitched despite the best efforts of the vice president.

The book, published Sunday and illustrated by EG Keller, has since shot to the top of the Amazon best seller list, outstripping the Pence version in at fourth place.

Oliver told NBC television Monday that the book quickly sold out but that a new shipment had been ordered. Both books are being sold for charity.

“The only thing better than one bunny book for charity is… TWO bunny books for charity,” Pence’s daughter wrote on her Instagram page.
