The group however stated that Reno Omokri’s activism does not reflect the true wishes of Nigerians or the state of affairs in the country
“Reno who has no visible means of livelihood but survives on blackmailing his country and it’s leaders before the world however advised Nigerians in New York to speak the language Reno understands to him, saying Nigeria is our collective heritage and we must not allow any individual to destroy our image for selfish reasons,” the statement read in part.
