Reno Omokri, former presidential spokesperson on New Media to Goodluck Ebele Jonathan who admitted to be the one who mobilized or influenced his followers both on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to report for the removal of President Muhammadu Buhari acclaimed war like post by the social media platforms have been suspended as a user on Facebook.
President Muhammadu Buhari as it would be recalled within the period suspended the activities of Twitter in Nigeria and ever since, the social media platform cannot be accessed in the country without the use of VPN.
Reno Omokri in a message few hours ago accused Natasha Akpoti to be the one responsible for the lost of access to his personal Facebook profile account.
He said the Natasha Akpoti gave out cash gifts to her supporters to encourage them report his personal Facebook profile where he has more than 389 thousand followers.
A check at the personal Facebook profile of Reno Omokri shows that he last posted or accessed the account three days ago.
He said since it appears he has lost access to the personal Facebook page, he resorted to the use of the Facebook business page, his team created for him years ago.
Excerpts of Reno Omokri statement:
I lost access to my personal profile after the said Natasha Akpoti did a giveaway to her supporters to encourage them to report my profile without basis.
Facebook makes these judgments via Artificial Intelligence, and it is easy to trick the system by making a coordinated series of reporting, which they did three days ago. It seems it is permanent.
It is a profile I have had since 2007, so it grieves me that I appear to have permanently lost it.
Because of the antics of people who were motivated by ₦10,000 each. It is still there, but I can’t post anything or edit, delete, or affect it. But such is life.
However, I still have access to my professional Facebook page. That is why you only see me on the professional page my team created last year.
My Instagram page is a bit iffy too. They reported it. But God willing, it will stay on. However, even if it does get taken down, please follow my back up page @TheRenoOmokri.
I love you all and really wish I could buy you all tickets to join me in sunny Santorini, Greece, for a party to celebrate my vindication. But, you are all always in my mind.
