A former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has accused the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd) of breaking the ladder of democracy.

The rights activist’s comments come as a reaction to the arrest of #OccupyLekkiTollGate protesters who were protesting against the reopening of the Lekki Toll Gate.

In a statement released on his verified Twitter handle, Omokri said that the president deceived Nigerians after Jonathan allowed him to protest freely in 2014.
