Reno Omokri, a Nigerian politician and lawyer, was met with opposition when he held a demonstration in London against the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, who was in the UK to lecture on security, economy, and foreign policy on Monday, December 5, 2022, at Chatham House.
Reno, who staged a protest codenamed, HarassTinubuOutOfLondon, received verbal attacks from supporters of the APC presidential candidate.
While he chanted, “Tinubu …drug lord,” supporters of the former Lagos State governor replied, “Tinubu for president.”
Amid the countering voices, Reno still expressed the belief that his protest was a success.
On Twitter, he wrote: “Tinubu will never forget the protest we just pulled off at Chatham House. He was disgraced and could not get out of his car. He had to run away. The #HarassTinubuOutofLondon Protest Against Drug Lord Tinubu at Chatham House was a resounding success! We shook the drug lord Asiwaju.”
Meanwhile, in a related story, Reno had raised the alarm over what he claims is a ‘threat to his life’ by a certain broadcast journalist working for the Labour Party presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi.
According to him, the broadcaster is planning ‘to take him out’ because he exposed him as a liar.
Noting that Mr Obi should be held responsible if anything happens to him, Reno in a series of tweets said: “A certain broadcast journalist, who has turned himself to a mouthpiece of Peter Obi made the mistake of calling someone to threaten to “take me out” after I exposed him as a liar. Unknown to him, the entire conversation was recorded. Such a threat is criminal!
“I am wondering if this threat to take me out was done on behalf of the @PeterObi campaign, or if the broadcast journalist was acting on his own. Why would anyone even say that? If it was not recorded, they would deny it. Take me out for what? For exposing a liar?
“When someone threatens to take me out, what can they mean? Because I exposed their Obidient lie against Tinubu? It is in my interest to lie that Tinubu did not attend Chicago State University. But he did. I went there. For this, Obi and his hack want to take me out?
“Anyone planning to take me out will fail in Yeshua’s Name. My hands are clean.. I cannot accuse Tinubu of what he is not guilty of. Yes, he is a known drug lord. But he went to Chicago State. If because of that you want to “take me out”, May God save your soul.
“Only God put me on Earth, and only God can take me out from Earth! ‘Who is he who speaks and it comes to pass, When the Lord has not commanded it’-Lamentations 3:37.
“If anything should happen to my immediate and extended family and I, Peter Obi and his consultant broadcast journalist should be held responsible!
“This broadcast journalist, who is a consultant to Peter Obi, called a VIP and lied that I called his station asking for an interview. Find attached screenshots of the proof that it was his station (which is the best in Nigeria in my opinion) that approached me.
“Tinubu is a known drug lord. I proved it by going in person to the Chicago court where he was tried. But I won’t slander him and say he did not go to a school I verified he attended directly from the horse’s mouth. If you must “take me out” due to that, be my guest!”
