Nigeria former Presidential aide, Reno Omokri, has reacted to accusations that he fathered a child with a “UK based lover”.
The report which began spreading online on Monday, May 17, and multiple publications published it. Reno was been accused of abandoning his wife who resides in the US to have an affair with a UK lover.
The news started trending with people accusing Reno of being a hypocrite who shames single mothers but is no different.
Reno however has now quenched the rumour as he stated that the report is “false” and was started because he declared his intention to convene a #HarassBuhariOutOfParis peaceful protest.
He further referred to the report as a “salacious and scandalous” report on his personality. He stated that the platform is controlled by the Presidency to distract him from carrying out his Paris protest.
The actor affirmed that he can never partake in premarital and extramarital sex as he abhors it.
He wrote on his Facebook page:
“Yesterday (Sunday, May 16,2021), I declared my intention to convene a #HarassBuhariOutOfParis peaceful protest, between Monday, May 17,2021 and Tuesday, May 18,2021, and this morning we woke up to a salacious and scandalous report about me that I will not even want to repeat.
A Nigerian proverb says the bird flew at right, and the baby dies in the morning.
The story is false. If you look at the platform that originally carried the story, it becomes obvious that it is being sponsored by the Presidency, to distract me from going to Paris because they know hat the Africa-France summit is an international platform and any protest will highlight the failures of General Muhammadu Buhari.
That platform is notorious for pro government stories. I am not the first perceived opponent of the Buhari administration to be targeted by them, neither will I be the last. You only need to visit the site.
I have never and can never engage in premarital or extramarital sex. I abhor it God forbid!!
I am so loathe to even respond to such a malicious attack on me by the Buhari administration . And I will not be baited to talk about private family issues publicly. Suffice to say that I have never had, and will never have a child out if wedlock.
To me, it is best ignored because the devil is known liar and that is who has inspired those behind this story.
Nobody can break my focus. After we are done with the Paris protest, my lawyers and I will sit down to decide if and when we should sue”.
