Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate for the 2023 election, claimed that he had been told multiple times that a certain group of people was after his life.

He made this known in an interview session with Njenje Media TV.

He said, “I have been told several times, ‘Peter, these people are going to kill you, don’t do what you are doing’.

“I have even been called and told I am causing confusion.”

The Coalition of South East Youth Leaders, COSEYL, had in June, this year,  warned against alleged plans by some terrorists to assassinate Obi.

According to a statement issued by the President-General of the coalition, Goodluck Ibem, some terrorists told their kidnapped victims who were freed that they had concluded plans to assassinate Obi over his decision to run for the presidency in 2023, saying Obi was a threat.

Responding to the threat, COSEYL said Peter Obi has the constitutional right as a bonafide citizen of Nigeria to run for any political office of his choice, saying the threat may lead to war.

The statement reads in part, “Nobody should think that he or she has a monopoly of violence. That we are peaceful does not mean that we are weak or senseless.

“Mr. Peter Obi as a bonafide citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and born in Nigeria has the constitutional right to contest for any political office he deems fit and nobody can stop that.

“Anyone who thinks he wants to attack Peter Obi is sick and the sickness will be treated appropriately at the right time.

“Only a wicked and idiotic person will be comfortable with the current state of the nation. Our country is in dire need of a drastic change that will turn things for good and some people are plotting to make matters worse because of their selfish agenda.

“We want these criminals to know that even a mad man is owned by some people and if you touch him thinking that as a mad man roaming on the street, he has nobody, his real owners will come out to defend him.

“We call on the security agencies to immediately move into action and arrest the real criminals plotting to assassinate Mr Peter Obi just because he is contesting for the office of the President which he is eminently qualified to do so. Enough said!”
