Reno Omokri, former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has led a group of people to protest against President Muhammadu Buhari’s medical trip to the UK.
The protest is taking place in front of Abuja House, London.
In a video of the protest, shared on his Twitter handle, the British policemen were seen trying to inquire the reason for the protest. Reno Omokri, was seen expressing his motives.
His words: ” I promised the police that I will be leaving, we have the right to peaceful protest, I will be leaving but you guys, remain here, no violence, be peaceful, we are insisting that Buhari must go back to Nigeria, I flew in here at great expense, I paid trips, I came in here because my country is important to me, I flew with Nigeria Airways, that’s to show you how proud I am with Nigeria , the colours I wore is white and green, I am proud of Nigeria but am not proud of Nigeria’s Leaders.”
Omokri, in a series of tweets on Friday, said the protesters were at the Abuja House to harass Buhari out of London.
He lamented the inadequacies of Nigeria’s health sector and also criticised the president over the Lekki shooting during the #EndSARS protest in Lagos.
He also criticised Buhari over the rehabilitation of repentant Boko Haram insurgents.
