The Labour Party presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, has been accused of raising terrorists under the guise of running for president by prominent activities, Deji Adeyanju.
Mr. Adeyanju is the latest in a long list of activists and ordinary Nigerians who have expressed concern over the nature of Obi’s campaign and the conduct of his supporters infamous for various intimidation and bullying tactics.
Tweeting on Sunday, Adeyanju said, “Peter Obi is raising terrorists in the name of running for president.” He further revealed, in what he deemed typical terrorist style, that everyone who has criticized Peter Obi has received death threats.
Adeyanju described the threats he has received for criticizing the candidate, reeling out a list of other affected persons including Reno Omokri, Omoyele Sowore, Sega Awosanya, and Sam Omatseye.
His criticism comes amid roiling controversy over threats by IPOB and Obi’s supporters to harm the family of Femi Kuti, the son of Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti, and torch the New Afrika Shrine in Lagos over the musician’s refusal to identify as an “Obidient.”
