Reno Omokri blasts Buhari, Osinbajo for shunning Attahiru’s funeral

Nigerian human right activist, Bemigho Reno Omokri, has called out the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) for not attending the burial ceremony of the late Chief of Army Staff, Ibrahim Attahiru, and other officers who lost their lives in a military crash on Friday, May 21.

The former presidential aide threw a shade at the President stating that it is uncalled for that he could go to Paris to attend a function but could not make it to the burial of the deceased military officers.

Reno concluded that the president's and vice president's actions showed there is no benefit of fighting and dying for Nigeria.

A few days ago, the human right activist debunked his rumours he has a love child outside wedlock.

The report, which spread like wildfire via various news and gossip platforms, prompted many to accuse the public speaker of being a hypocrite.

The former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan came out on social media to put the rumour to rest when he stated that the report was false.

Omokri claimed the attack on his character began when he announced that he and some other activists are planning to storm France to harass the president from the summit.

"…I declared my intention to convene a #HarassBuhariOutofParis peaceful protest."

He wrote on Facebook:

"Yesterday (Sunday, May 16, 2021), I declared my intention to convene a #HarassBuhariOutofParis peaceful protest, between Monday, May 17, 2021 and Tuesday, May 18, 2021, and this morning we woke up to a salacious and scandalous story about me, that I will not even want to repeat.

"A Nigerian proverb says the bird flew at night, and the baby died in the morning.

"The story is false. If you look at the platform that originally carried the story, it becomes obvious that it is being sponsored by the Presidency, to distract me from going to Paris, because they know that the Africa-France summit is an international platform and any protest will highlight the failures of General Muhammadu Buhari.

"That platform is notorious for pro-government stories. I am not the first perceived opponent of the Buhari administration to be targeted by them, neither will I be the last. You only need to visit the site.

"I have never and can never engage in premarital or extramarital sex. I abhor it. God forbid!

"I am so loathe to even respond to such a malicious attack on me by the Buhari administration. And I will not be baited to talk about private family issues publicly. Suffice to say that I have never had, and will never have a child out of wedlock.

"To me, it is best ignored because the devil is a known liar, and that is who has inspired those behind this story.

"Nobody can break my focus. After we are done with the Paris protest, my lawyers and I will sit down to decide if and when we should sue," he said
