Sowore Thinks Reno Omokri Will Be Physically Att@cked For Speaking Against Peter Obi
As the 2023 elections draw near, Omoyele Sowore, presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), on Friday said a physical attack on social media personality, Reno Omokri, is certain to happen.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Sowore’s comments comes amidst an online petition against Omokri, a top campaigner of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential flagbearer, Atiku Abubakar, and antagonist of supporters of Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party.
“There is a petition circulating on @Change against Nigerian social @media personality @renoomokri, this petition asking @twitter to ban Mr. Omokri are largely signed by @PeterObi supporters. I condemn this digital resort to mob justice by those behind this particular petition.
“It is matter of time before this gets physical and Mr. Omokri gets hurt. This was how Ivory Coast descended into crisis during Mr. Laurent Gbagbo’s re-election in 2010. The rest is now history. I denounce the petition for targeting Reno over exercise of free speech.
“I urge those behind the petition to take it sown as it posses direct threat to @RenoOmokri’a life, that of his family and his freedom of speech! #WeCantContinueLikeThis,” Sowore wrote on his verified Twitter handle.
