Peter Obi gets Detained in UK Airport? Find out the Impersonation Story

The 2023 flag bearer of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, was detained by the United Kingdom immigration officials at Heathrow Airport in London over a claim of impersonation.


The head of the ObiDatti Media office, Diran Onifade, who disclosed this said that Obi was held by immigration officials at the airport on his way back from the UK where he spent his Easter celebration.


Onifade in a statement seen by said Obi was harassed by London immigration officials and placed in detention but for the spontaneous reaction of Nigerians at Heathrow Airport.


He added that Obi had arrived the Heathrow Airport in London from Nigeria on Good Friday, April 7, where he joined the queue for the necessary immigration protocols but was accosted by officials who handed him a detention note.


According to Onifade, the UK immigration officials told Peter Obi to step aside and subsequently questioned him for a long time.


Describing the situation as “very strange for a man who lived for over a decade in that country”, Onifade said 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 offence.


He said also claimed that someone has been impersonating Peter Obi in London with an implication that the person may have been committing all kinds of crimes and engaged in dubious acts in the name of the former Anambra state governor.


He said:


“Since the impersonator is still at large, the scenario is unimaginable as Obi could be implicated in a series of forbidden acts and even be framed in a manner that could be a huge embarrassment to him, his family, his party, the Obidient Movement, and indeed Nigeria, where he currently and indisputably remains the conscience of the people. 


Obi-Datti Media office recalls that our principal has been under all kinds of attack, since the February 25th, 2023 Presidential election in which as the standard bearer of the Labour Party, he put up an outstanding showing coming third out of 18 contestants as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, even though his supporters and many other election watchers including international observers believe very strongly that he won the election but was manipulated out.”
