An ex-Niger Delta militant, Mujahid Dokubo-Asari has declared that Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi can never be president of the country as he has a stained reputation of being a drug baron which he is yet to refute.
Dokubo vowed to chase the LP standard bearer out of presidency if he eventually becomes president as according to him, a Pablo Escobar cannot be president of Nigeria.
He said this in a live video posted on Facebook.
The allegation comes on the back of several allegations on drug dealing that have been levelled against the former Anamabra state governor with Obi yet to respond to any.
Recall that a report of him also being accused of drug dealings by an APC chieftain in 2019 also recently got resurfaced on the internet.
Dokubo said that the hype given to Obi is undue in respect to who he really is — a drug baron — and that anyone supporting him to be president must be an Escobar themselves.
The ex-militant, who spoke in Pidgin and English language, said: “Who be Peter Obi? If him be president sef, I go pursue am. Una never see where citizens dey revolt say this man no go fit be president?
“If in your dream, Peter Obi becomes president, I go pursue am.
“E be like una dey overhype people. Who is Peter Obi? The Yahoo fellow? Somebody who has been accused of being a drug baron?
“You people are accusing other people. The main drug baron is Peter Obi. Who is Peter Obi? A criminal; a drug baron. He was accused publicly, he could not defend himself.
“In fact, everybody supporting Peter Obi must be a Pablo Escobar. If not, you cannot be supporting an Escobar to become our president.”
