Natasha Akpoti Deletes Facebook Post As Omokri Offers $50,000 Reward To Anyone With Photo Evidence Of Him At 2014 State Banquet
The 2019 governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party in Kogi State, Natasha Akpoti, has pulled down a Facebook post where she accused ex-presidential aide, Reno Omokri, of making “flirtatious advances” at her at a state banquet in 2014.
This came hours after Omokri provided more screenshots of immigration stamps on his international passport to show that he was not in the country during the period that Akpoti claimed that he made passes at her. Read HERE.
Akpoti, a lawyer and founder of Builders Hub Impact Investment Program (BHIIP), made the allegation against Omokri after the latter rebuked a female Facebook user, Ahuoyiza Blizzcute, for asking him to be her ‘sugar daddy’.
The ex-presidential aide had in response said: “Have you seen my wife? How will I leave iPhone 13 and follow iPhone 3 and call such sugar daddyism? That is bitter cola daddy.”
Omokri’s comparison of Ahuoyiza to an ‘iPhone 3’ appeared to have angered Akpoti, who in turn slammed him on the social media platform.
Checks by THE WHISTLER showed that Akpoti has now taken down the post.
Meanwhile, Omokri, in a subsequent Facebook post on Thursday, offered to give $50,000 to anyone with a photo evidence of him at the event where he allegedly made advances at Akpoti.
He wrote: “Many photos were taken at the State Banquet for Uhuru Kenyatta on May 6, 2014, both by the State House photographer and every media house in Nigeria. I hereby offer a $50,000 prize to anybody on Earth who can provide a photo of me at that event, and I give my word of honour that I will pay.
“This money will also be paid out if even the photo you have is a mobile phone photo. Any type of photo at all.
“I was a Presidential spokesman and chairs are ALWAYS reserved for us at the front with our names on it. Our table is usually one table away from the President, should he need to summon us at anytime.
“Also, there are videos of the event. Channels, AIT, SilverbirdTV and other stations had video coverage that are still on their YouTube pages. Also, one or two prominent journalists would have been there. They should have sighted me physically with their eyes. Can they come out and testify in a sworn affidavit that they saw me at the event?
“I have provided incontrovertible evidence that I was not in Nigeria during the days that President Uhuru Kenyatta visited Nigeria between May 4-7, 2014. Meanwhile, the person making the allegation has not provided one shred of evidence. Is it not he or she that alleges that should also prove?
“Since the said Natasha H Akpoti who made the allegation is from Kogi State, which is in the North, I will deposit the money with the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria in the 19 Northern states.
“A clear conscience fears no accusation. The truth is like a lion. You don’t have to defend the truth. You simply unleash and it will defend itself. I have unleashed it with $50,000 and I am waiting.”
