The founder of Silverbird Group, Senator Ben Murray-Bruce, on Sunday, shared a reported recording of popular Nigerian journalist, Rufai Oseni threatening to kill controversial author, Reno Omokri.
The former lawmaker who represented Bayelsa East Senatorial District, via his verified Twitter handle, shared the recording of the journalist, urging him to enlighten the public on what he meant by the word “take out” Omokri.
He captioned the post: “Young Rufai Oseni, @ruffydfire, would you be so good as to clarify what you meant in the call in which you threatened to “take out” Reno Omokri? As a media proprietor, I am shocked at such a threat coming from a journalist. That is unacceptable!”
In another post, Bruce called out the journalist after he was met with no response from him to elaborate on his words registered in the recording.
