Reno Omokri, a former presidential aide has called on Nigerian law enforcement agencies to ensure that embattled DCP Abba Kyari is paraded as a criminal.
Omokri made this statement in a Facebook post on Sunday, February 20.
“Almost a week after Abba Kyari was exposed as a drug baron, he has not been paraded by NDLEA, EFCC, or the Police. Meanwhile, the NDLEA immediately paraded a young boy caught with marijuana.
“Marijuana! You have someone involved in importing billions worth of hard drugs, and it is the marijuana teenager that you are arresting? If we test General Buhari’s urine, do you know what substances we will find?
“Even in crime, Nigeria still applies the quota system to favour certain people! A freedom fighter, Nnamdi Kanu, was paraded like a common criminal on the same day he was illegally kidnapped from Kenya and brought to Nigeria. Where is Abba Kyari? Let us see him paraded like the criminal he is!,” Omokri said.
Kyari who was earlier indicted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) over ties with a popular internet fraudster, Hushpuppi, was on Monday; arrested and also taken into the custody of the NDLEA for alleged links with an international narcotics cartel.
Meanwhile, former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said the Nigerian nation “needs more rebels”; to speak the truth to power without minding whose ox is gored.
Obasanjo made this assertion on Saturday, February 19; during the unveiling of the autobiography of the Babanla Adinni of Egbaland, Chief Tayo Sowunmi, in Abeokuta, ‘Footprints Of A Rebel’, to commemorate his 80th birthday.
This, according to Obasanjo, is one of the greatest steps towards rebuilding the nation.
The former President maintained that whoever wants to live a life of honesty and integrity must be a rebel.
Obasanjo said: “Looking at the title of the book, I ask myself, why would someone call himself a rebel. But it is good.
“But the truth is that if you have to leave a life of honesty and integrity; you have to become a rebel. There would be some time you would be asked to do something, but you would say no, this is not right. And when you say that, you will become a rebel. You may even become a persona non grata.
“This is our country, there is no country that we can call our own except Nigeria. Our country, Nigeria, needs more rebels. Those who would look at things straight in the face and say this is not right; this, I will not be part of; this is not good for Nigeria.”
