NNAMDI KANU: If insulting Buhari is a crime, Aisha, Nigerians should be tried – Reno Omokri
Reno Omokri, the former media aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan has reacted to the reviewed charges brought on the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu the federal government.
Kanu was earlier in 2015 accused of belonging to a terrorist organization, in possession of firearms and other criminal charges. Forward to 2021 regard his scheduled 21 October trial continuation, the case document revealed the addition of the content.
According to the AGF, the IPOB leader faces prosecution for calling Mohammadu Buhari, the Nigerian President, “idiot, a terrorist, and “embodiment of evil” and other unfriendly names.
Reacting via his media channels, Omokri faulted the government’s move to charge Knau in High instead of Civil Court.
Styled and self-acclaimed ‘Buhari Tormentor’ advised the president to deem it fit to try Kanu for Libel, Slander or better still, Defamation, adding that negative expression on a president is not a criminal offence.
His word partly read: “if General Buhari feels slighted that Nnamdi Kanu allegedly called him ‘an idiot”, “a pedophile” and ‘a terrorist” then he should sue him for libel, slander or defamation in a civil court. Ex
Reno Omokri described Malami’s move as an abuse of power. “pressing a negative image about someone, even a President, is not a criminal offence! Charging Nnamdi Kanu for insulting Buhari is abuse of power.
Tracing back, Pastor Reno accused Buhari of reigning insults to some Nigerian past leaders, including Obasanjo, Jonathan, and Yaradua.
His word continued: “Buhari himself insulted former Presidents Obasanjo (as recently as last year) and Jonathan as well as Yaradua. If insulting Buhari is a crime, then all Nigerians, including Aisha Buhari, should be tried!
