At 5Pm yesterday, Reno Omokri tweeted to his followers;

Dear Nigerians,  If we all mean business with this #EndSARS movement, let’s send a strong message to General @MBuhari.

He has 3.5 million followers. If we all stop following him and he sees his Twitter following drop by 1 million, he will sit up. Who is with me? Let’s go there! As at that time, President Buhari had 3.5 million followers.

Few hours after his tweet, the president’s followers reduced drastically and Omokri came back to ask for more.

“Dear Nigerians,  When I started the #UnfollowBuhari campaign as part of my #EndSARS protest, some laughed. Well, look. In just 1 hour, we have reduced Buhari’s following by 100,000. Never underestimate your influence.
When Nigerians wake up, government will be afraid of us!”
