An online newspaper, The Will Nigeria had reported that Omokri welcomed his fourth child – a baby girl – with his UK based lover and named her after his former boss’s wife, Elebe Jonathan.
The publication stated that the former presidential aide abandoned his wife, Tope Omokri, and their three children for over two years in the city of Antioch in north California where they live.
Reacting on his Instagram page, Omokri described the report as false, saying he has never and can never engage in any premarital or extramarital sex because he abhor it.
“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 story about me, that I will not even want to repeat.
“A Nigerian proverb says the bird flew at night, and the baby died 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 that the Africa-France summit is an international platform and any protest will highlight the failures of General 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, withr 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 of wedlock.
“To me, it is best ignored because the devil is a 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.
“Lest I forget, do you love Nigeria? Are you based in Paris? Join us for the #HarassBuhariOutOfParis peaceful protest tomorrow, 12 noon, Paris Time, at the Temporary Exhibition Centre, in front of the Eiffel Tower. Buhari can’t be globetrotting, while Nigeria is drifting. Go back and fix Nigeria!”
KanyiDaily recalls that popular OAP, Toke Makinwa had recently slammed Remo Omokri, for shaming ‘divorced women and slay queens’.
