President Jonathan’s aide accused of identity theft


The special assistant to President Goodlduck Jonathan on social media, Reno Omokri, has been accused by an American woman, Deborah Campbell, of identity theft.

According to a report by an online medium, Omokri used the identity of one Wendell Simlin to perpetrate forgery.

In telephone calls as well as emails to SaharaReporters, Ms. Campbell said she was determined to clear her son’s name and get Mr. Omokri punished. She said she was appalled that Mr. Omokri used her son’s name, Wendell Simlin, to create a Facebook page.

Ms. Campbell added that the president’s aide proceeded to use her son’s identity to create a fake document that sought to link Nigeria’s former Central Bank Governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, to terrorism.

Mr. Omokri, who claims to be a pastor, is President Jonathan’s lead person in social media.

Ms Campbell claimed to be married to Omokri’s brother in-law and that he had taken advantage of the relationship to carry out the identity theft.
