FORMER Special Assistant on New Media to President Muhammadu Buhari, Lauretta Onochie, has urged the Department of State Services (DSS) to arrest Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate Peter Obi for allegedly inciting violence in the country.
Onochie, the immediate previous chairperson of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) board, made the plea yesterday night on her X account, stating that if the police and DSS arrest Obi over certain utterances attributed to him, the skies will not fall.
Onochie’s request for Obi’s arrest was in response to an old pre-election video made by one Abubakar Sidiq Usman in which Obi urged his supporters to retake the country.
According to her, following his defeat in the 2023 presidential election, Obi, was attempting to incite unrest in the country through his supporters , known as “Obidients.”
The former presidential adviser stated in the post that Obi’s posture has been one of desperation for someone who finished third in the elections.
“Attn: @OfficialDSSNG,@PoliceNG I think it’s high time you pulled this clown,” she wrote.
“This man, @PeterObi, continues to instigate his headless and consequently, brainless followers to a violent change of government. I have never seen a more desperate individual.
“There’s something sinister and ominous about a man who came 3rd in a race and wants to be declared the winner, AT ALL COST!
“I think it’s high time he was pulled in to answer a few questions. Nigerians want to know why Peter Obi is this desperate.
“But our noble and patriotic youth completely ignored them, because sensible youth in Nigeria are more in number than his headless mob.
“Pull him in, the heavens will not fall,” she wrote.
