Former presidential media aide, Reno Omokri has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to arrest the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Speaking against the background of the arrest of former Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano who was arrested by the EFCC less than twenty-four hours after he handed over, Omokri said Tinubu has more corruption charges hanging around his neck than Obiano.
As earlier reported by Bibian Anekwe News, Obiano was picked up at the Muritala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos State on Thursday night while trying to travel to the United States.
The anti-graft agency through its spokesman, Wilson Uwajaren said the former Governor had been on their watchlist but could not be arrested earlier because of the immunity covering him as a sitting Governor.
Speaking on the development, however, Omokri in a Twitter post said the EFCC must operate with equity and arrest Tinubu as well to assure Nigerians that everyone is equal before the law.
“Compared to Bola Tinubu, Obiano is a saint. Compared to Oluremi Tinubu, Ebele is a choir mistress,” the former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan tweeted on Friday.
He added: “Why has EFCC left Bola Tinubu, with his humongous corruption, and gone after Obiano?
“Nigerians let us not allow ourselves be distracted by this drama! We need equity!”
