In a letter to the Cable Media, Mr Omokri wrote–
Challenge By Former IGP, Suleman Abba.
My attention has been drawn to a story published by your good selves and titled ‘Ex-IGP Blasts Omokri: Jonathan Will Be Sad If I Open Up’.
In the said interview, the former Inspector General of Police boasted of being a lawyer and challenged me to a debate. He was responding to my statement wherein I exposed his lies against former President Jonathan whom he had slandered by alleging that he forced former President Jonathan to concede the 2015 Presidential elections.
You will recall that I proved, with facts and dates, that the ex-IGP is a liar and that he could not have rigged the Osun gubernatorial elections for the PDP because the dates of his appointment and the date of that election, as well as the date of his sack, do not add up.
I also revealed that Mr Suleiman Abba was sacked for dereliction of duty, because under his watch, the Resident Electoral Commissioner of Kano State, Alhaji Mukaila Abdullahi, was burnt to death with his wife and two children on Friday, April 3, 2015, under suspicious circumstances after he had reported incidents of severe electoral fraud in his domain.
When confronted with this suspicious death, the then acting IGP of Police gave contradictory and unsatisfactory answers.
That being said, I note the boast of Mr Abba that he is a lawyer and his challenge to debate me. I wish to inform Mr Abba that I am also a lawyer with a Masters in Law from an English university and that I accept his challenge to debate me.
I hereby promise to buy Mr Abba a First Class Ticket to anywhere in the world outside Nigeria to facilitate the debate between him and me.
I hope that Mr Abba will not chicken out of his own challenge. I look forward to his speedy response.
