According to Peter Obi, the labor party’s presidential candidate, Adams Oshiomhole lied to Nigerians when he claimed that his government had brought the infamous Bakassi Boys to Anambra while he was the governor of Edo State.
Peter Obi reportedly announced this through his media adviser, Mr. Valentine Obienyem, according to Vanguard Newspaper. Everyone is aware that Peter Obi was not the governor of Anambra State during the time the Bakassi Boys were killing citizens there, according to Obi Dr. Chinwoke Mbadinuju’s administration, according to Obi, was in charge of bringing the Bakassi Boys to Anambra State.
During Dr. Chinwoke Mbadinuju’s tenure as governor of Anambra State, a group of security personnel called themselves the Bakassi Boys. According to reports, the group murdered unarmed civilians in Anambra State. Obi continued by claiming that he was still a private individual at the time the gang was active in the state.
“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. Obi, when the elementary inquiry would have shown any genuine seeker that it was under Dr. Chinwoke Mbadinuju, which was even before “
Peter Obi claims that he entered politics as a result of seeing the Bakassi Boys slay Prophet Eddy of Nawgu without remorse or regard for the law. Obi claimed that the murder led to his decision to enter politics in order to bring back morality and sanity to the populace.
Peter Obi also expressed disappointment at Adams Oshiomhole’s claim that he was responsible for bringing the Bakassi Boys to Anambra State. Oshiomhole is a political figure who is meant to be aware of social developments.
