DSS Unsuccessfully Tries To Arrest Reno Omokri Over His New Book.. And He Reacts

Media Aide to the immediate past President of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, Reno Omokri, arrest by the DSS at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport was unsuccessful.

Confirming this in an email to Vanguard, Reno said he had sent a consignment of the book, “Facts Versus Fiction”, to Nigeria for sales but when the distributor of the book got to the airport to pick the cargo, he was accosted by a Customs agent who began interrogating him until a DSS agent came up to him and took over the interrogation.

Omokri had told Vanguard via an e-mail:

   ''The DSS agent kept asking the distributor, ‘are you the author?’ to which the distributor responded in the negative. At which point, the distributor was detained and taken to an office with four or five other people in it.

   ''After some minutes, the distributor, who heard the DSS agent discussing his fate in an adjoining room, began moving to the door, which had been left ajar, and then bolted and took to his heels.''

Also, in an electronic voice mail sent to Vanguard, the distributor said he was repeatedly asked “Are you the author?” “Where is the author?” and “where is your passport?” among several questions to which he told them ''he was not the author and neither was he travelling abroad.”

He said he also told the operatives that the author was not in the country.

Here’s his reaction to the arrest move;
