PETER OBI SMUGGLED OUT OF A SEMINAR- IPOB ON HIS TRAIL
Thursday the 23rd of February, 2017 will remain in the mind of the former Governor of Anambra State, Chief Peter Obi as the day he would have joined his ancestors if not for the timely intervention of the able and fully equipped gallant security men in Anambra State. Chief Obi was invited as a speaker in a Seminar organised in Nnewi on Thursday the 23rd of February by the Association for Good Governance and Equity, (AFGGE). Because of the recent actions of Chief Obi that are seen as anti Igbo, the Indigenous People Of Biafra also stormed the venue of the event to express their displeasure on the activities of Chief Obi as it concerns Ndigbo of recent.
Trouble started when Chief Peter Obi mounted the stage to speak on the assigned topic, The role of Igbo Stakeholders in Nigeria Politics. Youths wearing IPOB branded shirts started chanting war songs and advanced towards the stage and hell was let loose. Participants were scared and it become clear that the life of Chief Peter Obi is in danger. The demonstrators were chanting dangerous words like, ‘ Obi is a traitor’, ‘he is the Ifeanjunna of our time’ , ‘Peter Obi hates ndiigbo’ and so many unprintable words. All efforts by the internal security arrangements in place at the venue could not bring the situation under control until, Valentine Obienyem fearing the worst for his master called the Nnewi Police Command who responded swiftly and surrounded the venue. At this juncture, Chief Obi was smuggled out of the venue in a Police Van with registration Number PF4812SYP.
The leader of the IPOB group who stormed the venue of the summit, Mr. Sunday Obinwa when interviewed told our correspondence that Chief Peter Obi is one of the most heartless men of Igbo extraction who hates the Igbo nation with overwhelming intensity and passion. He is of the view that the likes of Peter Obi should never be allowed to come close to Igbo land after he sold 25 hectares of land to Fulani Herdsmen in Agulu in Aniocha Local Government. He was the only Governor that was appointed into the economic team of the former president Goodluck Jonathan. In using his closeness with the former President, he advised the former President not to build any federal road in the Southeast and South south in his first tenure. He also advised building the second Niger Bridge because according to him, such construction in the Southeast will trigger hatred among the Northern regions of Nigeria. The group condemned Peter Obi for killing over five hundred Biarfrans who were dumped inside Ezu River when he was Governor. Mr. Obinwa vow that IPOB will settle scores with Peter Obi for the death of their members.
It will be recalled that during the time Chief Peter Obi was the Governor of Anambra State, over five hundred Youths were murdered in cold blood and were dumped into Ezu River. Until today, nobody were able to give the reason for the deaths but the leader of Biafran group confirmed that the corpses were that of their members who were arrested during peaceful demonstration. He confirmed that Chief Obi gave the express ordered for the extra judicial killings.
He also confirmed that under Peter Obi, their members were labelled Kidnappers and Armed Robbers and were targets for elimination. Calls to Chief Peter Obi’s telephone number was not answered.
