Omokri recalled that being nice at this critical time does not assure the future of Nigerian democracy if the coup plotters are allowed to abuse Freedom of Speech.
He compared an incident that recently happened in the United States where a U.S. citizen threatened the life of President Joe Biden the country and the following day, he was gunned down by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI.
Omokri’s reaction to the event unveiled in Nigeria in response to the military coup in Niger Republic reads “Someone threatened to kill President Biden, and the FBI shot him dead the next day, and there are people openly and flagrantly calling for a military coup in Nigeria and 24 hours later, they are still sleeping in their bed?
