Ex-aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan and award winning author, Reno Omokri, has said that “lying that you own a house that you don’t own” is not a crime.
Reno said this on his Twitter handle while reacting to the arrest, handcuffing and harassment of Blessing Okoro, a blogger that faked ownership of a mansion by taking photographs with the building and sharing it on social media.

The real owner of the house allegedly flew in from China because of the claim, and got Blessing arrested by security operatives.
The vocal ex-presidential aide, who is a contributor and commentator both on national and international issues, said while Blessing’s act was “immoral and dishonest”, it was not a CRIME.
It is important to point out that Mr. Omokri is a trained lawyer with Masters in Law from a UK University.
Mr. Omokri berated the harsh treatment meted out to Blessing, saying that the treatment in itself is the crime in the whole fake house ownership saga.
Mr. Omokri said further:
“The only CRIME I see here is the arrest, handcuffing and public harassment of Blessing Okoro”.
