Asari Dokubo is A Private Individual, I Have No Business With Him Being Tried for Treason – Reno Omokri
Special Adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan on New Media, Mr Reno Omokri has said that the leader of the Niger Delta Volunteer Peoples Force, Alhaji Asari Dokubo cannot be tried for treason because he is a private individual.
The Presidential aide said this in response to a question posed to him by a concerned Nigerian on twitter Thursday night.
The concerned Nigeria, Abdullahi Aborode who is based in the United Kindgom had asked Mr Omokri why he has been silent about the statement credited to the Niger Delta ex-militant leader, adding whether he doesn’t think Asari Dokubo”s statement amounts to treason and should be taken seriously, but the response that came from the President’s Special Adviser on New Media confirms the suspicions that Asari Dokubo dared make inflammatory statements because he knows he is protected.
“Sir @renoomokri I remembered you berated General Buhari for the ‘bloodshed’ comment, you’ve been silent about Asari Dokubo’s statement…why?”, Aborode asked Reno.
He continued: “Don’t you @renoomokri think that Asari Dokubo’s statement amounts to treason and should be taken seriously?”
Responding however, Reno Omokri simply said “He is a private individual. I have no business with him.”
His statement drew criticism from other twitter users who joined the conversation. They lampooned him for making such a comment, adding that if Asari Dokubo is a private individual, then Boko Haram, unknown gunmen, Ansaru and a countless number of others they mentioned should also be considered as private individuals and treated as such.
Further attempt by Aborode and others to engage Mr Omokri proved abortive as he simply refused to answer to further questions or comments.
