Former President Goodluck Jonathan’s Aid, Reno Omokri, has slam Lai Mohammed Minister of Information and Culture, for saying that the Federal Government of Nigeria and its security agencies know the whereabouts of kidnappers and bandits but only being careful.

According to Reno Omokri, the Federal Government of Nigeria was not careful with #EndSARS protestors last October when soldiers allegedly opened fire on youths at the Lekki toll gate in Lagos, injuring over 30 protesters and allegedly killing some youths.

It was earlier reported that the minister of information and culture at a briefing on Tuesday said the government indeed knew the locations of kidnappers, adding that security agencies were only being careful to avoid civilian casualties.

“One of the most difficult things to do, for a democratically-elected government of Nigeria, is to use the instruments of coercion against its own people. For example, while the nation’s military have superior firepower over the rag tag band of Boko Haram and ISWA, the terrorists most often than not operate among the populace, either in our villages or towns, hence the military, in tackling them, is usually careful to avoid collateral damage.

“The same applies to the kidnappers who abduct our school children. Usually, the location of the kidnappers is not unknown to security forces, but they still have to exercise caution in order not to hurt the same children they are trying to rescue. Despite these inhibitions, the security forces have the wherewithal to decisively tackle the challenges,” Lai Mohammed had said.

Reacting to the press conference, Reno Omokri, in a string of tweets on Wednesday, wrote, “Lai Mohammed says the Buhari government knows where kidnappers are, but are only being ‘careful’. But why was the Buhari administration not careful during #LekkiMassacre, or when they massacred Nigerian Shiites? Why is their mercy only reserved for kidnappers?

“Lai, why is your government now appealing to bandits and herdsmen? Did you ‘appeal’ to #EndSARS protestors before massacring them, or to the people of Orlu before slaughtering them? The Buhari administration is a useless embarrassment!”
