Breaking: DSS allegedly attempts failed arrest of Reno Omokri at Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport
The Department of State Services, DSS, Thursday, bared its fangs when it attempted to arrest bestselling author and former aide to Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Pastor Reno Omokri who is equally the author of the Amazon #1bestselling book, Facts Versus Fiction: The True Story of the Jonathan Years: Chibok, 2015 and Other Conspiracies today at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Vanguard has learnt.
The US based Nigerian publisher, who confirmed the development to Vanguard through electronic mail said he had sent a consignment of the book, Facts Versus Fiction, to Nigeria to meet sales but when the distributor of the book who bears a striking resemblance with Omokri got to the airport to pick the cargo, he was accosted by a customs agent who began interrogating him until a DSS agent came up to him and took over the interrogation.
According to him, “the DSS agent kept asking the distributor, ‘are you the author?’ to which the distributor responded in the negative. At which point, the distributor was detained and taken to an office with four or five other people in it.”
He added that, “After some minutes, the distributor, who heard the DSS agent discussing his fate in an adjoining room, began moving to the door, which had been left ajar, and then bolted and took to his heels.”
Also, in an electronic voice mail sent to Vanguard, the distributor said he was repeatedly asked “Are you the author?” “Where is the author?” and “where is your passport?” among several questions to which he told them he was not the author and neither was he travelling abroad. He said he also told the operatives that the author was not in the country.
