UK immigration still silent over alleged detention of Peter Obi.

The media team of Nigeria 2023 presidential election candidate, Peter Obi on Wednesday, April 12 2023 reported that on Friday, April 7, 2023, the LP presidential candidate was detained and questioned for a duplication offence that suggested that someone must have been impersonating Obi in London.

The LP media office said immigration officials at the airport handed Obi a detention note and told him to step aside when he joined the queue for the necessary airport protocols.

While the matter remains a talking point on social media in Nigeria, the UK immigration is yet to comment or issue any statement on the issue.

Diran Onifade, Head of Obi-Datti Media has in a statement dismissed the claim, saying neither Obi nor the Labour Party has received any apology from the British Government.

The statement reads in part, “We have been receiving enquiries with regards to a so-called apology, purportedly issued by the British Government or any of its agencies, to our Principal Mr Peter Obi, in respect of a routine Immigration engagement with him, as he arrived London, for a brief visit, last Friday, the 7th of April.

“We would like to state emphatically that we are not aware of any such apology, and have not issued any statement whatsoever, in that regard.”
