Animal rights activist condemns Chef Hilda Baci for consuming dog meat

Animal rights activist and President of the My Dog & I group, Jackie Idimogu, has criticized chef Hilda Baci for consuming dog meat.

The incident occurred during Hilda Baci’s attempt at a Guinness World Record for the longest cooking marathon by an individual, where she was accompanied by influencer Enioluwa Adeoluwa in her hometown of Akwa Ibom.

In a viral video, Hilda and Enioluwa were seen seated at a table where dog meat was served. While Hilda admitted to indulging in dog meat, she tried to persuade Enioluwa to try it as well, but he declined.

Expressing her disapproval, Jackie Idimogu posted a video message on her social media page, accusing Hilda of being cruel to animals.

She pointed out that members of her group, along with their dogs, had shown their support for the chef during her cookathon. Jackie found it contradictory that Hilda would consume dog meat despite this support.

Jackie said, “Members of My Dog & I group wore their shirts to go and support Hilda, dogs were present at the cookathon to support Hilda. I know that there were about two or three dogs because when my group members went there they made sure to take pictures and videos with every dog there.

“Now, imagine my surprise this evening, scrolling through Instagram and then I see on a news blog that this same Hilda posted that she is eating a dog.”

She said she was initially skeptical of supporting Hilda during her cookathon when she heard she was from Akwa Ibom but decided to give her the benefit of doubt because she thought the chef was exposed.


She added, “Hilda in her infinite mercy and wisdom, thought that the best thing for her to do after the world celebrated Nigeria through her relentlessness. And now that the torchlight of the world is on Nigeria through you, you decide that what you want to show the world is that Nigerians are dog eaters? No, no. I’m making this video to refute the fact that Nigerians are not dog eaters.”
