The special assistant to President Goodluck Jonathan on new media, Reno Omokri, allegedly together with armed thugs who reportedly work under his instructions burgled a house in Bendel Estate, Warri, according to Sahara Reporters.
The report says the perpetrators carted away the sum of N25million for a pro-Jonathan's support group to allegedly buy votes for Jonathan during the presidential election on March 28. (Scroll down for photos)
According to Sahara Reporters, the impeccable sources who witnessed the incident said that Omokri had stormed the apartment in DPPA Housing Estate, Warri, with armed thugs and some mobile policemen who later fled the scene carrying a “Ghana must go bag” filled with money.
The property in question, Sahara Reporters learned, belonged to Omokri’s late mother. Omokri is already the subject of litigation after his bid to forcefully evict the occupants from the building.
The source stated: “A similar incident happened in 2014 when the estranged Omokri had, after a court proceeding on the case instituted by him, mobilized some people to the premises and boldly painted on the fence the inscription: “This house belongs to Bemigho Omokri, Fina Oyoro is being evicted at Customary Court in case No 561/2012 even when the court was yet to decide on the matter. Omokri is using the presidency to intimidate everybody.”
The building, which is located at plot 17, 19 street, of DDPA Housing Estate, Ugborikoko-Effurun, opposite the Warri residence of former governor of the state Chief James Ibori, was abandoned for four years. It was in a dilapidated condition prior to the lease agreement, but was given extensively renovated by the Oyoros under the lease agreement they had with late mother of Omokri, Ms Helen Igbene, who at that time resided in Enugu state.
