A former presidential aide and member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Reno Omokri, has accused the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, of running a criminal family in lieu of a political campaign.
This came as a reaction to the recent conviction of the Director-General of the Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Organization, Doyin Okupe.
It would be recalled that Okupe was sentenced to two years in jail by a Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday after being found guilty of contravening sections 16(1)&(2) of the Money Laundering Act for allegedly accepting cash from former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki (retd).
Okupe later paid a sum of N13 million as a fine in the 26 count charges preferred against him.
Omokri, who reacted to the development in a series of tweets on Tuesday, accused Obi of working with criminals.
He quizzed the former Anambra State Governor over his intention to wrest power from people he had severally branded as criminals, accusing him of being a criminal himself.
Omokri wrote: “Questions for Peter Obi: Will you continue to allow a convicted criminal, and dishonest individual to head your campaign as Director-General? Are you running a political campaign, or a mafia crime family? Do you fight external thieves and embrace internal ones?
