Reno Omokri: “Sound Sultan knew about his health condition, yet he sacrificed his comfort to fight for the common man”

Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri in a post on social media heaped praise on late Nigerian singer, Sound Sultan for his contribution toward 2020 #EndSARS protest. Reno Omokri in an Instagram post shared a collage photo of the singer speaking at the protest ground in 2020 and also stated that Sound Sultan knew about his health condition, yet he sacrificed his comfort to join the fight against police brutality.

Sound Sultan died of throat cancer on Sunday, July 11, after a long battle with throat cancer. The activist compared the late singer to President Buhari, who he also claims ran to London for 6 months when he was sick; whereas Sultan stayed and fought for the common man.

He wrote: “And to think that Sound Sultan knew about his health condition, yet he sacrificed his comfort to fight for the common man. What an uncommon man.

Buhari was sick and he ran to London for 6 months. In a similar situation, this young man chose to associate with the people.

Whenever a sane regime rises to power, this photo should be put on Nigeria’s stamp.”

In a follow-up post, he wrote; Between October 20, 2020 and today, what has changed?

No soldier or policeman was brought to book over the #LekkiMassacre of peaceful, unarmed #EndSARS protesters.

Twitter, which was used to coordinate the protest, has been banned in a tantrum by Buhari.

Cryptocurrency, which was wrongly believed to have funded the protests, was banned.

TV stations that covered the protests impartially were fined and also threatened.

Nothing changed. Life in Nigeria just became worse! The Buhari junta is just using us to play the Squid Game.

Meaning that unless Buhari goes, Nigeria will not grow!”
