Group Alleges Plot to Kill Peter Obi of Labour Party 

    Published By:

    According to Leadership report, An Onitsha-based human rights group, International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law Intersociety, has alleged a plot to kill Peter Obi, the former governor of Anambra State and the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP).

    A statement signed by the chairman of its Board of Trustees, Emeka Umeagbalasi alongside other senior officials.

    The statement read, “Intersociety is strongly and unmistakably raising alarm and alerting the world especially the office of the United Nations Secretary-General and Presidents of the UN General Assembly and the UN Security Council; that the life, safety and liberty of Mr. Peter Obi, are in grave danger.

    “These are on account of the fact that politico-religious extremists in the Nigerian political establishment have assigned the country’s jihadists to assassinate him in coming weeks or months, or before the 2023 presidential election scheduled to take place at a date in February 2023.”

    “The alarm was particularly based on a recent confession by an alleged Fulani kidnapper, who revealed to his captive on the plot to kill Obi,” The group added. 

    This was confirmed by a kidnap victim, Dr Frankln Ezeonwuka of the Spiritan University, Nneochi, Isuochi, Abia State, the same area where the Prelate of the Methodist Church, Most Rev. Uche Kanu was kidnapped, said some Fulani herdsmen had revealed to him while he was in their captivity that the presidential hopeful was their next target.

    The group said; “On Wednesday, 15th June 2022, Dr. Frankln Ezeonwuka of the Spiritan University, Nneochi in Umunneochi Local Government Area of Abia State was pursued in his jeep and abducted by some AK-47 rifle-armed Fulani jihadists.

    N20 million ransom was paid before he was released alongside a female staff, when he was under the captivity of the jihadists, he was told about so many evil plans they have against the Igbos.
