Obi-tuary: Omatseye Alleges death threats from Peter Obi’s supporter

Columnist, Sam Omatseye, has raised alarm over alleged death threats on him coming from supporters of the Presidential Candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi.

This occurs sequel to Omatsheye’s latest article published in The Nation newspapers, titled ‘Obi-tuary’.

The columnist in his article depicted Obi as a shelter for miscreants, saying, “Obi has turned out to be an excuse for even closet Biafrans to betray open emotions about Biafra without being accused of it. This includes intellectuals who did not show mercy to him while he reigned in Anambra as a pharisaic chief executive. It is like wearing a colour beneath another colour. Obi has become a shelter for both miscreants and activists of the crowd.”

The article, which is now a subject of intense debate on social micro-blogging website, Twitter has spurred sharp criticism against the author from Obi’s supporters.

In a tweet on Tuesday, Omatseye, alleged that Obi’s supporters are threatening his life.

He said if anything happens to him, the LP presidential candidate should be held responsible

He tweeted:

“Mr. Peter Obi, call your supporters to order. They are calling and issuing death threats. If anything happens to me, you will be held responsible!”
