Reno Omokri, former media aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, in what seemed like a reaction to the press statement from the Kaduna state government, says it is impossible to hold a press conference at Arewa House without the knowledge of the Kaduna State Government.

He further asked if Arewa youth President, Yerima Shettima will be charged with treasonable offenses like Nnamdi Kanu, Asari Dokubo and Gani Fawehinmi for calling for self determination of the region.

Omokri in a statement, noted that the conference where it was agreed to expel the Igbos from the north was held at the Arewa house in Kaduna state, thus giving the Kaduna state government hint at to where they can find the signatories.

He said: “The press conference where Igbos were asked to quit the North was held at Arewa House. To those who do not know what Arewa House is, go and research it. It is almost impossible to hold a press conference at Arewa House without the knowledge of the Kaduna State Government. Is someone flying a kite?

“That being said, In 2015, Nnamdi Kanu was jailed by the Muhammadu Buhari administration for two years and charged with treason because he called for an independent state of Biafra. In 2005, Asari Dokubo was jailed for two years by the Olusegun Obasanjo administration and charged with treason because he called for self determination of the Niger-Delta. In 1993 and 1996 the Abacha administration jailed Gani Fawehinmi for months and charged him with treasonable offenses (holding a political rally against the government).

“Nigerians are waiting to see if the same treatment will be meted out to Alhaji Yerima Shettima, President of the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, who has also committed an act of treason by declaring war on Nigerian citizens of Southeast origin when he and his group ordered them to leave Northern Nigeria. If he is treated with kid gloves then we will know that President Buhari meant what he said about treating 97 percenters differently from 5 percenters.
