A former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has reacted to Governor Babagana Zulum’s action over suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari.
News had reported that Kyari was indicted by the FBI over alleged shady dealings with a Nigerian fraudster popularly known as Hushpuppi. Kyari was subsequently suspended by the Nigeria Police Force, NPF, and investigation has since continued to get to the root of the matter.
However, a video emerged on Monday on social media alleging that Zulum and his predecessor, Senator Kashim Shettima, had visited the embattled cop at his residence over the incident.
Reacting to the viral video clip, Malam Isa Gusau, spokesman of the Borno governor had on Wednesday said it was an old video being recirculated by some mischief makers to rubbish the governor and his predecessor, Senator Shettima.
Gusau said the video in circulation was rather an event, which occurred on June 30, 2021, long before the indictment of the embattled DCP Abba Kyari by the FBI in the case of Hushpuppi.
Omokri, in a post on his Twitter handle on Thursday, expressed pity for Abba Kyari.
According to the former presidential aide, he never expected Governor Zulum to join the bandwagon.
His tweet reads: “The statement by Governor Zulum’s spokesman against Abba Kyari and his purported video is the ultimate denial and rejection of Kyari.
“I never expected that Zulum would join the bandwagon and drop Kyari like a hot potato. This life! I actually feel sorry for Kyari.”
