Attack on Obi is attack against Nigerians – Group reacts to man caught with dagger in LP Oyo rally



COSEYL, the Coalition of South East Youth Leaders, has condemned the actions of an unidentified man who stormed the Labour Party campaign rally in Oyo with a dagger.

A video of a person found brandishing a dagger at a campaign event in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State, has reportedly gone viral on social media, according to reports.

A tweep, @BishopPOEvang who first posted the video, alleged that the suspect was standing where the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi was expected to pass.

He wrote, “How we unarmed a guy who was not a security personnel today. He was standing on the way @peterobi would pass. @BishopPOEvang noticed it and called in secretary operatives”

Reacting, COSEYL in a statement issued by its president general, Goodluck Ibem accused supporters of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC of plotting to harm Obi.

The statement reads partly: “We warn those assassins who parade as politicians to bury such evil thought of planning any evil on Peter Obi because there will be dire consequences if any little scratch touches Peter Obi’s skin.

“Peter Obi is the face of the new Nigeria which Nigerians are waiting for to move them to the Promised land.

“We, therefore, demand an independent investigation of that young man who came with a dagger to assassinate Mr Peter Obi in Ibadan LP rally and was arrested by the security operatives.”

Attempts to reach the Oyo Police Command for comment were futile because the state’s police public relations officer, Adewale Osifeso, did not return his calls.
