The OBIdients, supporters of Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party for the 2023 election, were on Saturday morning tear gassed by some police operatives in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State capital.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Labour Party members and supporters of the former Anambra State governor had gathered along Mile 50 area to embark on a rally to canvass support for their candidate but were interrupted.

According to one of the ‘OBIdients’, Nwali Ikechukwu, some persons were injured when the security agents tear gassed them and some arrests were made.

It is not yet clear the exact reason for the police action but the spokesman for the Ebonyi State Police Command, SP Chris Anyanwu, could not be immediately reached for comments.

Ebonyi is a state controlled by the All Progressives Congress (APC), with Dave Umahi as its governor.

  1. Where is the million heads in the picture. You would have thought and expected the gathering of even a hundred could defy and or stand up to the police anywhere.

    WHILE THE POLICE MUST PERFORM ITS PRIMARY FUNCTION OF PROTECTION AND SAFETY OF THE CITIZENZ BY MAINTAINING LAW AND ORDER.

    I would have preferred they allow the EMPTY BOAST mentality of the LP political minions to once again enable the whole world to witness the ineffectual unrealistic much touted 1-million-man march that never was in all the places they have attempted to stage the showboat and gallery display of shame that never even gathered 200 people let alone 500 to even imagine the million they do not know and cannot attain.

    DO THE obirodents KNOWS WHAT A MILLION LOOKS LIKE ON PAPER TO EVEN IMAGINE WHAT A MILLIN CROWD WOULD BE?

    Governor El-Rufai was proven right in Kaduna when he said the nauseating menace of the obirodents would not garner and or gather 200 people for its rally in the state. The LP gathering never did. Not able to attract a 100 even, predictably.

    PEOPLE SHOULD ALLOW THESE BUNCH OF UNRULY INEFFECTIVE LOUDEST EMPTY BARRELS IN THE CURRENT POLITICAL DISPENSATION IN NIGERIA TO CONTINUE TO REVEAL ITS PENCHANTS FOR USELESS MEANINGLESS BRAGS WITH BOASTS.

    The police should allow them to give us the entertainment of a market dance. We can take that, the banditry of HUGE NOISE MAKERS

    IT COULD BEST BE DESCRIBED AS THE TINY RANT OF INCONSEQUENTIAL PEASNATS.

  2. One can easily deduce from your baseless write up that you are disillusioned. Without using government instrumentality, who would reckon with the Governors who have nothing good to offer the country except their self aggrandizement.

    Why disrupt Mr Peter Obi’s rallies if you’re not afraid of his imminent triumph? Allow Obi’s supporters to operate seamlessly, election is not a do or die affair.
