Peter Obi detained and interrogated by Uk immigration officials over crime allegedly committed by impostor

The Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council (LPPCC), has disclosed that the party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, was detained and interrogated for hours by immigration officials at Heathrow Airport, London, over offences allegedly committed by an impostor.

The Campaign Council, who raised an alarm, stated that Obi’s impostor, who is still at large, may commit various crimes that would lead to the arrest of Peter Obi in the United Kingdom.

This is according to a statement signed by Head of Media of the Obi-Datti, Diran Onifade.

In the statement, Onifade noted that Obi was arrested at the Heathrow Airport for duplication. 

Onifade said Obi arrived the Heathrow Airport in London from Nigeria on Good Friday, April 7, 2023, and joined the queue for the necessary airport protocols when he was accosted by an immigration official who handed him a detention note and told him to step aside.

The statement reads in part: “The Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi just back from London, United Kingdom where he celebrated Easter, has confirmed that he was harassed by London immigration officials and placed for detention but for the spontaneous reaction of Nigerians at Heathrow Airport.

“Obi-Datti Media office can confirm that the LP Presidential candidate in the February 25 Presidential poll arrived the Heathrow Airport in London from Nigeria on Good Friday, April 7, 2023, and joined the queue for the necessary Airport protocols when he was accosted by immigration official who handed him a detention note and told him to step aside. He was questioned for a long time and it was very strange for a man who lived for over a decade in that country.

“Since Obi’s face was already an international frame, especially for Nigerians, Africans home, and in Diaspora who are likely to be Obidients, the people quickly raised their voices wondering why he was being delayed.
 
“The immigration officials who were also taken aback at the reaction of the people were forced to reveal that Obi was being questioned for a duplication offense, meaning that someone has been impersonating him in London.
