Reno Omokri, former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has criticised the Federal Government over the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC’s) questioning of popular socialite and businessman, Obinna Iyiegbu, aka Obi Cubana.
Omokri accused the government of “double standards”, reminding people that ‘even with damning evidence, top police officer, Abba Kyari wasn’t invited by the EFCC’.
“Even with the damning evidence the FBI provided against Abba Kyari, he has not bern invited to the EFCC, nor is he under arrest. So, again, why is Obi with EFCC and not Tinubu or Kyari? Is it because Obi is Igbo and they are not? This is obviously double standards!” Omokri wrote in a tweet.
In another tweet a few minutes later, he said, “I would counsel Cubana to join and donate to APC, like FFK, and not only would his ’sins’ (if any) be forgiven, he can even take a photo with Buhari at Aso Rock. A government and party of double standards. Hailing Tinubu and jailing Obi. Yeye baff una!”
It will be recalled that the EFCC had on Monday invited Obi Cubana to its head office to answer questions on sundry issues, which the agency merely classified as tax fraud and money laundering but declined to give specifics, apparently to avoid jeopardising the probe.
