Reno Omokri has lashed out at the Minister of Information and Tourism, Lai Mohammed, accusing him of destroying President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.
Omokri was reacting to a recent statement by Lai Mohammed concerning arrest and prosecution prominent church overseers like Pastor Enoch Adeboye and Williams Kumuyi for defying FG’s Twitter ban.
Lai Mohammed had, while reacting to the decision of Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, to defy the ban on Twitter in Nigeria, said the power to decide who to prosecute lies with the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami.
He stated this in an interview with BBC Africa Focus on Monday night, when asked if Adeboye will be prosecuted for using Twitter.
Recall that Adeboye had justified his use of Twitter with Article 19 of the United Nations, UN, Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).
In a tweet, the RCCG General Overseer said the church is domiciled in over 70 countries of the world, hence the need to continue tweeting.
However, Mohammed insisted that Nigerians who accessed Twitter, including Adeboye, after the ban, would be prosecuted.
And reacting to Lai Mohammed’s comment, Omokri said Lai Mohammed will destroy the Buhari government with his mouth more than Buhari’s enemies.
“He has succeeded in alienating Nigerians from their government. He is meant to be an Image-maker, but has ended up as a damage-maker,” part of the tweet read.
