A former Nigerian Presidential aide, Reno Omokri has taken to his Twitter page to tempt Presidential aide, Garba Shehu with $20,000 as a reward for a challenge.
O’News gathered that the author challenged the Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari to spend a night at two communities of Borno and Sokoto State without security men.
Reno then offered Shehu the sum of $20,000 to be paid to him by Dele Momodu if he could dare to spend a night either in Kware in Sokoto State or Koshobe in Borno State.
Reno’s challenge follows a claim by Shehu that President Buhari has secured Nigeria.
See below the tweet reaction to Shehu:

Shehu replied, saying he would not accept it if the money was part of donations for the rescue of Leah Sharibu a female student of Government Girls Science and Technical Secondary School, Dapchi, kidnapped by Boko Haram on February 19, 2018.
“If this is the money from the collections made in the name of Leah Sharibu, the unfortunate Christian girl stolen by Boko Haram, I won’t touch it with a long. Please keep ‘your USD20000,’” wrote Shehu.
