Reno Omokri Calls for Buhari’s Impeachment After CNN Released Damning Findings On Lekki Shooting
President Muhammadu Buhari
A former presidential aide has condemned President Muhammadu Buhari, calling on the national assembly to impeach him.
Reno Omokri, stated that the President has violated his oath of office.
He made the statement in reaction to the investigative report made by CNN on the October 20 shootings of peaceful unarmed #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate in Lagos.
In his Twitter post, Omokri maintained that Buhari and his Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Tukur Yusuf Buratai, must face the International Criminal Court for “their crimes against humanity”.
Omokri further stated that the report from CNN vindicates those, including himself, who maintained from the onset that there was a massacre at the Lekki toll shooting.
“The @CNN investigation has vindicated those of us who were consistent that there was a #LekkiMassacre of peaceful, unarmed #EndSARS protesters. The next stage is very much on course. Both Generals @MBuhari and Buratai must face the @IntlCrimCourt for their crimes against humanity,” Omokri tweeted.
Recall that the government and army have both denied that the soldiers killed any protester at the toll, maintaining till date that no live ammunition was used.
This came after initially deny the presence of the soldiers, arguing that the Instagram Live video by celebrity, DJ Switch was “photoshopped.” The army went on to say that they were invited to the scene by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State.
