Owo: Omokri reveals link between Gaddafi and terrorists in Nigeria

Amid the shocking attack by terrorists on a Catholic church in Owo, Ondo State, Reno Omokri, a former special assistant to Nigeria’s former President, Goodluck Jonathan, on Monday said many of the criminals launching attacks in West Africa territories are “trained mercenaries” of late Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi.

POLITICS NIGERIA recalls that former US President, Barack Obama, said in 2016 that the worst mistake of his presidency was a lack of planning for the aftermath of the 2011 toppling of Gaddafi.

He said, however, that intervening in Libya had been “the right thing to do”.

The US and other powerful countries carried out strikes designed to protect civilians during the 2011 uprising.

But after the former African strongman was killed, Libya plunged into chaos with militias taking over and two rival parliaments and governments forming. Also, militants from the Islamic State (ISIS) gained a foothold.

“Many people don’t realise what is happening in Nigeria. Organised terrorism in Nigeria originated with the overthrow of Gaddafi by Obama. After his death, Tens of thousands of his trained mercenaries spilled into West Africa and have been causing havoc ever since!” Omokri wrote on his verified Twitter handle.
