Reno Omokri, former New Media Aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan had agreed to a challenge by Suleiman Abba, former Inspector-General of Police, for a public debate on events that occurred during the immediate past government.
Abba had while on a visit to the secretariat of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Lagos yesterday vowed to make damning revelations about the Jonathan administration in a public debate if Omokri provoked him.
It was recalled that Omokri had accused him of spreading falsehood over the reason he was fired as police boss.
However, in a swift reaction, Omokri said on his Facebook page that he was willing to fly to any location outside Nigeria at his own expense to face the ex-Police boss in a debate.
He wrote: “Please inform the past Inspector General of Police, Suleman Abba, that I accept his challenge for a debate.
“He should name any location outside Nigeria and I will meet him there at my own expense.
“I hope Abba will chicken out. The ball is in his court.”
