The Coalition of South East Youth Leaders, COSEYL, has sent message of warning to some terrorists who allegedly plan to assassinate the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi.

The President-General of the coalition, Goodluck Ibem, has via a statement issued on Saturday, said that some terrorists have confessed to their kidnapped victims who were just set freed that they have concluded plans to eliminate Peter Obi for daring to contest for the Nigerian presidency.

The statement also alleged that the information which originated from the terrorists declared that Obi was a threat in the presidential contest, and therefore need be assassinated.

While reacting to the threat, COSEYL revealed that Peter Obi has every right as a qualified citizen of the country to contest for any political seat of his choice, saying the assassination threat may trigger war.

The statement partly reads: “Nobody should think that he or she has a monopoly of violence. That we are peaceful does not mean that we are weak or senseless.

“Mr. Peter Obi as a bonafide citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and born in Nigeria has the constitutional right to contest for any political office he deems fit and nobody can stop that.

“Anyone who thinks he wants to attack Peter Obi is sick and the sickness will be treated appropriately at the right time.

“Only a wicked and idiotic person will be comfortable with the current state of the nation. Our country is in dire need of a drastic change that will turn things for good and some people are plotting to make matters worse because of their selfish agenda.

“We want these criminals to know that even a mad man is owned by some people and if you touch him thinking that as a mad man roaming on the street, he has nobody, his real owners will come out to defend him.

“We call on the security agencies to immencely move into action and arrest the real criminals plotting to assassinate Mr Peter Obi just because he is contesting for the office of the President which he is eminently qualified to do so. Enough said!”.
