Keyamo Asks Security Agencies To Place Peter Obi, Supporters On Terror Watch List


September 13, (THEWILL) – The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, has called on Security Agencies in the country, to place the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi and some of his supporters on the terror watch lists, for circulating an incendiary video with a fake message.

Keyamo is the Director, Public Affairs and Chief Spokesperson of the APC Presidential Campaign Council.

The All Progressives Congress chieftain, spoke in reaction to an earlier call by the Labour for his arrest, over an alleged plot by his party to assassinate Peter Obi.

The allegation was made in a statement signed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Arabambi Abayomi, while responding to Keyamo, who accused Obi of plotting to stage-manage an attempt on his life.

Abayomi added that Tinubu and his handlers have become “jittery and totally frightened enough” of Obi’s nationwide acceptance, following “the various States’ Peter Obi one-million-man rallies that have been recording very huge successes across the nation.

“The attention of Labour Party has once again been drawn to the most bizarre and unprecedented desperation of APC led administration, through their presidential Campaign Spokesperson, Mr Festus Keyamo, who raises false narratives about our party presidential candidate, Mr Peter Gregory Obi, of an attempt to fake a self assassination attempt against his own life.

“No one is confused by the APC through Festus Keyamo’s open pre-crime alibi. No one is fooled enough to buy into the very sadistic attempt to create a confusing narrative ahead of committing a felony.

“Labour party considered this devilish act by the APC presidential spokesman, as not only deceitful but a subtle way to gain unmerited sympathy in their bogus attempt at employing crude primitive tactics clandestinely in order to win the 2023 presidential election through fraudulent means.

“Festus Keyamo’s provocative and highly disparaging insinuation against our Presidential candidate would have been ignored with its puerile contents but it’s expedient to set the record straight for the benefits of the public and our party members.

“Festus Keyamo in a fabricated and very misleading press statement, claimed he was responding to a non-existent false rumour that Peter Obi plans to ‘stage-manage’ an “assassination attempt” on himself is alarming and very frightening and it leaves no room to doubt the implications of the claim as it is like a self-confession by the APC in its plan to assassinate the LP Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi”, the party alleged.

But in a swift response on Tuesday, Keyamo, who accused Obi of an obvious plot to cause religious war, urged security agencies to place the LP presidential candidate and some of his supporters on security watch.

He said: “I also call on the Security Agencies in Nigeria to place Mr Peter Obi and some of his demented supporters on the terror watch lists, for circulating an incendiary video with a fake message by one of his supporters called Powell Glad Legbe (on his Facebook page), calling on Yorubas not to vote for Peter Obi.

“Mr Peter Obi then wrongly and wickedly attributed that quote to an amorphous ‘Tinubu group’.

“Up till now he has not withdrawn his accusation nor has he apologised to our candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“It is obvious Mr Peter Obi wants to cause religious and tribal crises in the country and for this, I call on the security agencies to place Mr Peter Obi on security watch or invite him for a thorough investigation. If necessary, I am prepared to be invited too as a witness to prove my case against him. Thank you.”
