Former presidential adviser Reno Omokri has turned to social media to express his outrage after allegedly receiving threats from Peter Obi's Labor Party members.
The online commentator claimed that Peter Obi should be held accountable if anything happened to him, his wife, children, or siblings in a message uploaded on his Instagram page.
Following charges that he utilizes his platform to post tweets that can spark an ethnic and religious conflict between Hausa and Igbo, 'OBI-dients' initiated an online petition to block his Twitter account.
Reno Omokri said, "Watch what they are doing to me. That is exactly what they will do to anyone critical of Peter Obi if he becomes President. There will be no free speech. Only mob justice. They threatened my life. Then they threatened my one-year-old daughter. Why? Because I criticized their god and messiah.
What exactly did I say? I said Peter Obi was wrong to describe himself as a pilot and other Presidential candidates as "mere drivers" and "substitute players". That is why they are threatening my life. If I was in Nigeria, they would have sent unknown gunmen after me.
Now, imagine if Rabiu Kwankwaso had described himself as a pilot and other Presidential aspirants, and Peter Obi in particular, as 'mere drivers'. What will they do? I reported their threat to my life to Peter Obi directly. He did nothing.
The threats are becoming too much. My life is at risk. If anything happens to me, my wife, my children, or my siblings, the world should hold Peter Obi responsible. He has raised a horde of intolerant and violent Obidients who just want to replace Buhari's tyranny with theirs!"©Standard Gazette, 2021.
