Otedola’s N5bn Donation: Reno Omokri And The Indimi Family Engaged In War Of Words

The drama between Reno Omokri and the Indimi Family which started yesterday appears heating up.

Everything began after billionaire Femi Otedola donated N5billion to children in the Northeast ravaged by activities of Boko Haram insurgents.

Reno Omokri, responding to the donation, he expressed that the billionaire who is from Southwest Nigeria had put all the Northeast billionaires including the Indimi family to shame.

He wrote:

“Femi Otedola ?has just put the billionaires of the Northeast to shame. Where are the Indimis, the Mai Deribe family and other oil billionaires from the Northeast? Google their names and some of the first pictures you will see are of their children in private jets, marrying Presidents children and displaying obscene wealth while surrounded by extreme poverty. It took a Good Samaritan stranger to do what natives of the Northeast failed to do! Shame on them and God bless the talakawa that they have refused to look after”.

Reacting to the claims by Reno Omokri, Rahma Indimi listed some of the things the Indimi family has done for the poor.

See the screenshot below.

Her reaction didn’t go without a response from Reno Omokri who likewise referenced his very own contribution to the care of the poor in the Northeast.

He wrote:

”Dear Indimi Family,

I saw your post attacking me. You shouldn’t see my criticism of your obscene display of wealth in the midst of the extreme poverty surrounding you as hate, neither should you see my opposition to your powerful in law, General Buhari, as bitterness. That is rather petty. Opposition is a vital part of democracy, and I am not asking you to do what I have not done. I hate to do this. I would prefer to keep it private. But since you challenge me, please find attached a picture of an orphanage I built with my hard earned money to house orphans from Borno IDP. Yet, I am not from Borno. I have also travelled to 36 countries so far in 2019, campaigning for #FreeLeahSharibu, a native of Borno, where you come from. I don’t have one percent of one percent of your wealth. You can’t be flaunting private jets and spending hundreds of millions when you are surrounded by the worst poverty on planet Earth and expect not to get called out! There are millions of internally displaced people in Borno. If indeed you guys are doing something, we will see it via the IDPs. Shut me up by making a difference to their lives!” 

Rahma Indimi shared a letter their family received from the UN in response to Reno’s latest attack.

He captioned:

”Dear @renoomokri I regret ever responding to your silly rant. Nope, we have nothing to prove to you and nope we will not stoop to your level again. As you can see we are busy doing what we need to do and I’m extremely satisfied that the international community has seen our efforts and being rewarded for it is all I can ask The Almighty Allah for. Alhamdullilah. I never should have responded, my response is Allah ya isa Duniya da lahira. That is more than enough. In the mean time, we will do as much as we can and will do it quietly in Sha Allah”.
