Reno Omokri, a former aide to the president, claimed that the threats coming from Peter Obi’s Labour Party backers had become excessive.
As a result, he declared that Obi should be held accountable if anything were to happen to him or his family.
Omokri claimed in a post on his Instagram page on Friday that he had been the target of harassment because he disagreed with Obi’s claim that he was a “Pilot” and the other candidates for Nigeria’s top position were merely “drivers.”
“What exactly did I say? I said Peter Obi was wrong to describe himself as a pilot and other Presidential candidates as “mere drivers” and “substitute players”. That is why they are threatening my life. If I was in Nigeria, they would have sent unknown gunmen after me.
“I reported their threat to my life to Peter Obi directly. He did nothing.
“The threats are becoming too much. My life is at risk. If anything happens to me, my wife, my children, or my siblings, the world should hold Peter Obi responsible. He has raised a horde of intolerant and violent Obidients who just want to replace Buhari’s tyranny with theirs!”
