A former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has appealed to former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, to withdraw a petition she wrote to the Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba, demanding the prosecution of blogger and social media influencer, Japheth Omojuwa, for alleged fraud.
Omokri, in a Facebook post on Friday, implored Ezekwesili to show Omojuwa the “love of God” and “forgive” all that the blogger had allegedly done.
The ex-presidential aide said though Omojuwa had labeled him a “useless thing” in the past, it was his prayer that God would help him overcome his current challenges.
“I also appeal to Pastor Obiageli Oby Ezekwesili, to find it within her herself to show you (Omojuwa) the love of God, and forgive you, as well as withdraw her petition to the Inspector General of the Nigerian police calling for your prosecution.
“I urge Dr. Ezekwesili’s to bear 1 Corinthians 6:7 in mind. Scripture enjoins believers not to go to court against other believers, even if it means we will suffer wrong. God is the ultimate Judge. Leave it to Him to avenge you. Do not destroy the young man. May God bless you both,” Omokri wrote.
Ezekwesili’s petition is entitled, ‘Petition Against Mr Japheth Omojuwa for Forgery, Fraudulent Misrepresentation and Fraudulent Use of the Name, Identity and Particulars of Mrs. Obiageli Ezekwesili as a Director of Alpha Reach Limited RC No: 1066507’ is dated April 14, 2021 but was received at the Force Headquarters on April 15.
