Reno Omokri has announced a $500 reward for anyone who can reveal the true identity of @realex_2x, an online supporter of Peter Obi.
The former presidential aide announced the bounty after @realex_2x threatened his daughter.
Omokri had shared a video where Fr. Mbaka said Peter Obi can not be president.
Reacting to the post by Omokri, an Instagram account with the name @realex_2x said:
“Reno don’t get me upset. Now delete this post or you’re going to see what I gonna do to your daughter.”
However, Omokri has now also petitioned the Department of State Security over the threat.
In a statement issued on Thursday, Omokri said:
“Please can you help me identify this fellow who goes by @realex_2x on Instagram? I will give out a cash reward of $500 to anybody who exposes his true identity. I am also petitioning the Department of State Security. If anything happens to my daughter, even if she gets a headache, the response will not be gentle.
“Even if you support Peter Obi, it is not, and I repeat, it is not okay for you to threaten my children. Is this the Nigeria we want? Where your children are threatened if you don’t support someone’s ambition?
Some of you also have children. Will you accept this? Why threaten my child with harm just because of politics?”
