Peter Obi Kicks Against Arrests Of OBIdients

Arrests Of OBIdients

Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi has kicked against security agents ‘arresting’ his supporters whom are widely known as OBIdients.

He made the call just now on Twitter, saying Elections are not deemed free and fair when a certain group employs the tool of intimidation to ensure that the opposition is silenced, both at the campaigns and at the polls.

He then called on the Federal and State agencies to remind their operatives on the need to respect civil liberties.

His statement;

”Elections are not deemed free and fair when a certain group employs the tool of intimidation to ensure that the opposition is silenced, both at the campaigns and at the polls.

Peaceful assembly and unfettered electioneering campaigns are constitutionally guaranteed. Both and other ordered liberties cannot be breached wilfully by security agents.

Recent reports of OBIdients being silently arrested by some security agents is extremely disturbing and condemnable. We must ensure that everyone is given a level playing field in the forthcoming elections, and that no eligible Nigerian, irrespective of ethnicity, religion, or political affiliation is disenfranchised, more so through violence and intimidation. I call on the Federal and State agencies to remind their operatives on the need to respect civil liberties. -PO”
