Reno Omokri an ex-aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, has appealed to United States, United Kingdom and other foreign countries to reconsider selling arms and weapons to Nigeria, in order to prevent the country from descending into war. Reno Omokri appeal is coming less than 48 hours after President Buhari in a statement which was posted on Twitter, threatened to teach those who are hell-bent on destroying the country a hard lesson.
Buhari in a controversial tweet on Tuesday threatened to treat Nigerians misbehaving in the language they understand. But the statement was greeted with wide outrage from many Nigerians who asked the social media platform, Twitter to delete the President’s civil war Tweet, saying such remark could plunge the country into turmoil.
Consequently, in his reaction, even though Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has deleted the controversial tweet yesterday, Reno Omokri in a statement on Thursday strongly appealed to the European Council, UK and the US government not to sell weapons to Nigerian government in order to prevent the country from descending into war, saying if Nigeria descends into war, Nigerian refugees will flood to their countries.
According to his words; “We appeal to the EU Council, @ 10 Downing Street, and @ White House to prevent genocide against Nigeria’s Igbos, by refusing to sell weapons to @MBuhari. Because if Nigeria descends into war, Nigerian refugees will flood to your countries!”
Consequently, diverse reactions have continued to trail the appeal by the former presidential aide. While some agreed with him, others argued that if such request is granted, it will also affect war against insurgency in the Northern states. But, in your view, do you think the European countries should grant Omokri’s request? Leave your opinion on the comment box below.
