“We Are Sorry” – UK Government Apologises To Peter Obi Over His Illegal Detention
British Government has apologized to the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, over his illegal detention at Heathrow Airport in London, United Kingdom.
KanyiDaily had reported how Peter Obi was detained and questioned for a duplication offense which suggests that someone has been impersonating him in London.
The Head of Obi-Datti Media Office, Diran Onifade, who made this known in a statement issued on Wednesday, said Peter Obi was harassed by London immigration officials and placed in detention where he spent the Easter holidays.
Onifade explained that Obi’s impostor may have all kinds of weighty crimes and other dubious acts that led to the harassment of the LP flagbearer who lived for over a decade in the UK.
He emphasized that since the impersonator is still at large, the scenario is unimaginable as Peter 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 Obedient movement, and Nigeria, where he currently and remains the conscience of the people.
