… Omokri denies allegation
BEVERLY HILLS, January 21, (THEWILL) – Deborah Okezie, mother of Don Davis Archibong, whose alleged sexual molestation and maltreatment at a Deeper Life School is on trial, has accused former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, and some Deeper Life Church members of threatening her life.
THEWILL recalls that the Police in Akwa Ibom state had arraigned seven persons in connection with the alleged sexual molestation and maltreatment on a four-count charge bordering on maltreatment of boys under 14 and thereby committing an offense punishable under section 556 of the criminal code, cap 38 Vol. 2 Laws of Akwa Ibom State 2000.
The case is being heard at the Magistrate court in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State where the school principal, Mrs Ndidi Solomon and four others are being prosecuted for unlawfully and indecently assaulting Don-Davies Archibong.
However, Deborah in a video on Thursday alleged that her life was being threatened by some members of Deeper life church and other prominent persons.
According to her, Reno Omokri had called and told her to apologize on newspapers and TV or accept whatever happens to her.
Deborah said: “My Blood Pressure, Bp is very high. Nigeria, the world at large, the threat is too much. Yesterday, before the court sat I told the lawyer I wanted to see the Magistrate, but they said I could not.
“The threat is too much, someone sent me a message, saying; how was the burial of your son? You are fighting a church, definitely you will bury your son. This thing is killing, we cannot say because the matter is in court, I will keep quiet and die inside. One Mr Reno Omokri called me that I should go and apologize on national newspapers and TV.
“I don’t understand what I am apologizing for or whom I am to beg. He said If I do not, anything I see I should take. To me that is a threat, my BP is high. Please, the matter is in court; they should allow the court to take its decision.
“They cannot tell me to shut up when Deeper Life members are treating me anyhow. Please beg Reno Omokri and Deeper life members to leave me alone. I do not have what he has. I’m living in fear, the threat is much, and I cannot do things freely.”
Reacting, Reno Omokri took to his Facebook account refuting the claim that he threatened Deborah saying that he will give Deborah the N100 million she is demanding as damages from the school.
He said in a video: “I will pay Don Davies’ Mother N100 million she is demanding if she proves I threatened her”
