Hushpuppi: Reno Omokri reacts as Gov Zulum denies visiting Abba Kyari

Reno Omokri

Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has said that he never expected Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, to deny ever visiting the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari.

DAILY POST recalls that Kyari was recently suspended by the Nigeria Police Force, NPF, over his alleged involvement in Hushpuppi’s fraud saga.

However, a video emerged on Monday on social media alleging that Zulum and his predecessor, Senator Kashim Shettima, had visited Kyari at his residence over the incident.

But Malam Isa Gusau, spokesman of the Borno governor 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.

Reacting to the development, Omokri, in a tweet via his Twitter handle on Thursday, said he felt sorry for Kyari.

“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,” Omokri tweeted.
