Reno Omokri, former presidential aide to Goodluck Jonathan has revealed what Goodluck Jonathan told him about the detention of African Action Congress presidential candidate and Sahara Reporters founder, Omoyele Sowore.
Sowore is currently being held in detention of the Department for State Security, DSS, on charges of treasonable felony and plans to overthrow the President Muhammed Buhari government.
Sharing on Twitter, Reno Omokri revealed what Goodluck Jonathan told him about Sowore and his continued detention.
“I just spoke to former President Jonathan and urged him to read my column in today’s Thisday, titled ‘Sowore and Buhari: A Romance Gone Sour!’
“He paused for a while, then responded, ‘Reno, instead of writing about what he did against me, I prefer that you pray for the young man. Help him if you can. He didn’t know what he was doing’.
“I was stunned. There was silence on my end for something like 5 second’s. Then President Jonathan said, ‘Reno, are you still there? I can’t even remember my response. I think I stammered”.
“Is this man a human being or an angel? Sometimes, I have doubts. His level of forgiveness is beyond me.”
