Ex presidential aide, Reno Omokri has come out to say that charging leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu for insulting President Buhari is an abuse of power.

He recently had his say via his social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, President Buhari has also insulted former Presidents Goodluck Jonathan, Olusegun Obasanjo and Musa Yar’adua in the past and heaven didn’t fall.

Reno added that if insulting Buhari is a crime, then all Nigerians including his wife, Aisha should be persecuted for the same reason.

His words, “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. Expressing a negative image about someone, even a President, is not a criminal offence! Charging Nnamdi Kanu for insulting Buhari is abuse of power. Buhari himself insulted former Presidents Obasanjo (as recently as last year) and Jonathan as well as Yar’adua. If insulting Buhari is a crime, then all Nigerians, including Aisha Buhari, should be tried!”


Bemigho Reno Omokri (born 1974) is an author and lawyer. Omokri was the host of Transformation with Reno Omokri, a Christian teaching TV show broadcast (for one season) on San Francisco’s KTLN and Detroit’s Impact Network. He is the founder of a multimedia project, Build Up Nigeria, and has produced a series of short films in the U.S.

He is the pastor of the Mind of Christ Christian Center in California and Abuja. He is also known for using social media to project the Gospel. Omokri continues to write articles for major newspapers (mainly political OpEd and Christian material).

On August 17, 2017, the Department of State Security attempted to arrest him at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja but failed. Three days after the failed arrest attempt, the ruling party in Nigeria, the All Progressive Congress, named Omokri, along with former President Goodluck Jonathan and Governors Nyesom Wike and Willie Obiano as some of those showing “hatred, narrow-mindedness and meanness” to President Muhammadu Buhari.

He was one of three spokesmen to the former President, and is credited with pioneering the use of social media for political purposes in Nigeria.
