Reno Omokri Dares Opponents: “Arrest Me if You Can,” Challenges Apprehension Threats
Defiant Reno Omokri Challenges Arrest Threats, Asserts Innocence
Renowned public figure and former aide to Nigeria’s ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, Pastor Reno Omokri, has thrown down the gauntlet to his adversaries, inviting them to follow through on threats of apprehending him should he set foot on Nigerian soil. Omokri made this audacious declaration in a video posted on his official Twitter account, asserting his unwavering innocence and highlighting his impeccable record of public service.
During the video message, Omokri emphasized his position as a public servant who has no hidden agendas, asserting that his professional history is transparent and beyond reproach. He took the opportunity to address the allegations of misconduct that have been directed at him, stating, “I have been investigated by security agencies down to my underwear, and they found nothing.”
Known for his critical stance on the administration of former President Muhammadu Buhari, Omokri has consistently voiced his opinions on Nigeria’s political landscape. In recent times, he has engaged in verbal exchanges with Mr. Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), while simultaneously endorsing the candidacy of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential nominee of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Elaborating on his recent return to Nigeria, Omokri recounted his arrival at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport. Narrating the events, he described purchasing a first-class ticket and being the first passenger to disembark from the plane. This recounting serves to underline his determination and confidence, as he declared that no legal grounds exist for his arrest, as he has not committed any crimes.
In a final assertion of his innocence and a challenge to his detractors, Omokri expressed his belief that his past and present actions are beyond reproach. The fervor of his words encapsulated his conviction that he has the right to move freely without the specter of arrest looming over him.
As this saga unfolds, the nation watches to see whether Omokri’s confident defiance will quell the mounting apprehension surrounding his potential return to Nigerian shores. The challenge has been laid down, and the ball is now in the court of those who have raised doubts about Omokri’s actions and intentions.
