Oshiomhole lied, no insecurity in Anambra during my tenure – Peter Obi
The Labour Party, LP’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has dispelled the allegations by former National chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole that he was inept to tackle security challenges in Anambra state during his tenure as governor.
Oshiomhole while speaking at the APC youth conference at Abuja, had claimed that Obi brought the notorious Bakassi Boys into Anambra. He also said that it was his successor that quashed the insecurity in the state by demolishing houses of kidnappers.
Replying through his media aide, Valentine Obienyem, Obi said Oshoimhole’s motivations were mischievous and biased.
He added that Bakassi Boys terror reign ended long before his tenure.
He said: “It is a pity that a former governor, who ought to be informed, would credit the bringing into the state of Bakassi boys to Mr. Peter Obi, when elementary enquiry would have shown any genuine seeker that it was under Dr. Chinwoke Mbadinuju, which was even before Sen. Chris Ngige, that Bakassi people operated in Anambra State.”
