Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, on Friday described the plan by President Muhammadu Buhari-led government to link the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu to the EndSARS protest as pathetic desperation.
The Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, had claimed that the IPOB leader used the #EndSARS protests to incite violence and the killings of security agents.
Malami in his statement said, “Despite the proscription of IPOB by the Federal Government, Nnamdi Kanu continued the subversive campaign, instigating and inciting broadcasts to direct members of the IPOB to launch attacks on the government.”
“The EndSARS protests of October 2020 played into the sinister plans of Nnamdi Kanu, whereby he seized the protests through subversive and inciting online broadcasts and actively commanded and directed attacks on security personnel and facilities.”
Omokri in his reaction noted that the EndSARS protest was unplanned and is leaderless.
He wrote, “The attempts by the discredited Buhari regime to link Nnamdi Kanu to the #EndSARS movement is an act of pathetic desperation.”
“EndSARS was unplanned and is leaderless and has nothing to do with Kanu or IPOB. The Buhari junta should grasp at facts, not at straws”.
