Orlu: Imo gov only qualified to be “Tura cream brand ambassador” – Reno Omokri
Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has criticised Governor of Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodinma for inviting the military to intervene in his state.
Recall that Uzodinma had disclosed that he invited the military into some parts of Orlu senatorial district after members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) killed some policemen and other people in the area.
The governor had given the explanation through the state Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Barr. Cyprian Akaolisa, at a press briefing in Owerri on Friday.
“The attacks on police stations and killing of policemen during #Endsars were carried out by IPOB and not protesting youths for the sole purpose of hijacking and stealing weapons.
“They are now using those arms to destroy Orlu.
“They killed 10 policemen, a prominent Orlu soon, Ignatius Obiezu and one Emmanuel Okeke (Soludo) collected their Hilux vehicles
“The IPOB also shot and killed four Moslems doing their business in Orlu.
“IPOB said they were looking for herdsmen, but these victims they killed before the crisis, were they herdsmen?
“We heard Nnamdi Kanu celebrating the activities of his men in Orlu that they are doing well by killing innocent citizens. There’s no Fulani herdsmen in Orlu.
“So, we asked ourselves, what is the colouration that IPOB is trying to give this onslaught in Orlu?
“That’s why our government decided to invite military to flush out IPOB and their so called ESN,” he said.
Reacting, Omokri said it was unconscionable of the governor to have invited soldiers to “invade” the area when other state governors were creating regional security outfits to protect their people.
Taking to Facebook on Saturday, Omokri wrote, “When a Supreme Court appoints someone who is only qualified to be a Tura cream brand ambassador, as Governor, things like #OrluAirAttack is what we get.
“Other Governors are creating Amotekun and Hisbah to protect their people, your own is to invite the army to invade your people.
“Just negodu! That is why I support the Senate’s plan to ban bleaching creams, because it will at least have a positive influence on the governance of some states, which are at the moment suffering from bleaching cream induced hallucinations!”
