Place Peter Obi on Watchlist for attempting to fuel religious crisis -Keyamo

Festus Keyamo, Director, Public Affairs and Chief Spokesperson, APC Presidential Campaign Council has called on Security agencies to place Peter Obi on terror watchlist.

In a statement made available to ENigeria Newspaper on Tuesday, Keyamo responded to the Labour Party’s appeal to security agencies to place him on terror watchlist. READ MORE

Earlier, Keyamo had alleged that the Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi intend to hire some followers kitted in APC hats and T-shirts to attack his party offices and stage an attempted assassination.  Abayomi Arabambi, the National Publicity Secretary of the LP, responded by calling Keyamo’s labelling “treasonable conduct,” which justifies being added to the terror watch list by security services.

However, the Minister of State for Labour and Employment in a swift response to the Labour Party contained in the statement re-produced below said:

“I also call on the Security Agencies in Nigeria to place Mr. Peter Obi and some of his demented supporters on the terror watch lists for circulating an incendiary video with a fake message by one of his supporters called Powell Glad Legbe (on his Facebook page) calling on Yorubas not to vote for Peter Obi. Mr. Peter Obi then wrongly and wickedly attributed that quote to an amorphous ‘Tinubu group’. Up till now he has not withdrawn his accusation nor has he apologized to our candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu”.


“It is obvious Mr. Peter Obi wants to cause religious and tribal crises in the country and for this I call on the security agencies to place Mr. Peter Obi on security watch or invite him for thorough investigation. If necessary, I am prepared to be invited too as a witness to prove my case against him”, he concluded.
