Reno Omokri has stated that had it been Sahara Reporters publisher, Omoyele Sowore, is an Igbo man, his tribe would have rallied round to help him meet his bail conditions.
A judge in the case between Sowore and the Federal Government stated on October 21st that no one has come forward to meet his bail conditions.
Sowore is standing trial for alleged treasonable felony and is accused of trying to topple the Buhari-led administration.
Reacting to the new development, Reno Omokri stated that the bail conditions for IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, was more stringent but met by people of his tribe.
”Despite the stringent bail conditions set for Nnamdi Kanu, Igbos wasted no time fulfilling it. Sowore’s bail terms are nowhere near as tough as Nnamdi Kanu’s, yet no one has stood for him. Yet, while he was in detention and court, many people were talking tough in his defence. It just tells you a lot about Igbo communal spirit as compared to other ethnic nationalities. If Sowore was Igbo, he would have been out of jail by now.
An Igbo Senator, Enyinnaya Abaribe, risked jail, put his Senatorial office on the line, to stand as surety for Kanu. Are you trying to tell me that none of Sowore’s kinsmen have ordinary ?50 million? I am yet to see a people who love themselves like the Igbo.
In America, believe it or not, Igbo unions give newcomers loans to set up their own businesses. I have seen news stories of destitute Nigerians abroad who need assistance. That can never happen to an Igbo. Other Igbos in that community will rally round and rehabilitate him or her. Let us all learn that self love from Ndi’Igbo and Nigeria will be better for it”
