Fraud: Omokri begs Ezekwesili to forgive Omojuwa

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, over allegations of fraud.

Omokri, in a Facebook post on Friday night, called on Ezekwesili to show Omojuwa the “love of God” and “forgive” all the blogger’s transgressions.

The ex-presidential aide said though Omojuwa had labelled 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.

In the petition signed by Marshal Abubakar of Falana and Falana Chambers, Ezekwesili said Omojuwa fraudulently listed her name as a director in his firm, Alpha Reach Company Limited without her permission, adding that she only got to know of the infraction when she was contacted by American news outlet, Buzzfeed, over a story on Alpha Reach.

She noted that her name was eventually removed in 2017 but no special notice of proposed removal was ever issued or served on her.

“We submit that the foregoing infractions amount to forgery, fraudulent misrepresentation and egregious breach of extant provisions of the Penal Code Law, the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015 and the Companies and Allied Matters Act deserving of investigation and prosecution,” the petition partly read.
