Auto Draft The Informant247

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party LP, Peter Obi, has dismissed the claim that the United Kingdom UK has apologized to him following his unlawful detention by an immigration officer who mistook him for someone else.

This was revealed in a statement released by Diran Onifade, Head, Obi-Datti Media, on Thursday April 13.

Onifade said the UK has not sent any message of apology to the presidential candidate as revealed by some media organizations.

“We have been receiving enquiries with regards to a so called apology, purportedly issued by the British Government or any of its agencies, to our Principal Mr Peter Obi, in respect of a routine Immigration engagement with him, as he arrived London, for a brief visit, last Friday, the 7th of April.

“We would like to state emphatically that we are not aware of any such apology, and have not issued any statement whatsoever, in that regard.

“While we continue to examine any dubious or political motive, on the part of the perpetrators of the identity theft.

”We have every confidence in the ability of the British authorities to resolve the matter to its conclusion.

“Mr Peter Obi and the LP/PCC have since moved on from the incident and continue to be totally focused, on the legal processes before the Election Petition Tribunal towards the recovery of our mandate, which we are firmly convinced was overwhelmingly expressed by voters, in the Presidential election of February 25th.”

The Informant247 earlier reported that Peter Obi, was detained and questioned for hours by operatives of the immigration service at Heathrow Airport in London on April 7, 2023.

This was revealed by the Head of Obi-Datti Media Office, Diran Onifade, in a statement released on Wednesday, April 12 in Abuja, the capital of the nation.

The media office revealed that Obi was wrongly detained and interrogated for hours over offences carried out by another person — impostor.

The statement revealed that the impostor might have committed offences that would cause arrest and humiliation of the presidential candidate of the LP.
