Report reaching DAILYNEWSLINK news desk has it that the Presidential candidate of Labour Party Peter Obi was on Friday 7th April 2023 detained by immigration officers in UK Airport over for an alledged impersonation and document duplication.
The news of Obi’s detention was disclosed Mrs Chinyere Stella Okunna who Peter Obi confidentially disclosed his ordeals to, in Nkpo Anambra state on Tuesday.
Revealing the information in a post on his Facebook handle which she Titled “WHAT PETER OBI IS GOING THROUGH: DOES ANY HUMAN BEING DESERVE THIS TYPE OF SHOCKING INTIMIDATION & EMOTIONAL TORTURE??? said that she was shocked to hear Peter Obi narrates what he went through in the hands of UK immigration officers.
Speaking further,she said that the Immigration Officer told him that his identity “WAS DUPLICATED”. and handed a detention note for further interrogation.
According to her, “when Peter Obi Landed in London, Peter Obi joined the usual queue to pass through Immigration, and that was when his ordeal began:
“He was stopped and questioned for a long time and subsequently handed a detention note and told to wait for further interrogation and investigation.
“This was terribly unusual for a man who had lived honourably in the UK for a long time.
“In the face of this harassment, some well-meaning Nigerians, knowing who he is, raised their voices in protest, demanding to know why he was being treated that way.
“Then came the shocking revelation by the Immigration Officer who told him that his identity “WAS DUPLICATED”. This revelation has definitely set off alarm bells.
“For people who are knowledgeable about such matters, this is a very dangerous development because the implication is that someone is IMPERSONATING Peter Obi.
“And that someone could implicate Obi in all manner of dubious and even criminal activities, and rope him into any number of offences; he could get Obi framed for one criminal act or another. The frightening scenario of what can happen, is unimaginable!!!
“This is the height of it all for a man who has been under sundry intimidation and emotional torture: Bugging of his phone and those of his wife and children; keeping him constantly under surveillance; calling him names; putting him under severe pressure to leave (run away from) the country; wrongly accusing him of negative things he knows absolutely nothing about etc.
“As he was telling me his ‘Heathrow tale of woe’ at Nkpor today, I could see a man who was in severe pain and and under unbearable stress, who many would expect to be at the point of despair.
“But, as he confirmed, he is ready to suffer this pain and is as determined as ever to pursue the path which he has chosen to enable him arrive at the destination which well-meaning people in Nigeria and far far beyond are expecting him to arrive at.
