Peter Obi says He Will Never Knowingly Break Any Law amid reported UK detention

Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, has said he has never knowingly contravened the law.

Obi said this in a tweet on Tuesday following his reported detention at Heathrow Airport in London by UK immigration.

“I never expected the journey to a New Nigeria to be an easy one. The forces, who had over the years, lived off the old order, are bound to fight back, as is being experienced now,” Obi said.

“If they come at us through land, air and sea, we will respond to them through land, air and sea but, we will remain law abiding and will never give up on the nation. We are on the right path and we will remain committed to the course.

“I reiterate my commitment to building a Nigeria that will be beneficial to every Nigerian. The struggle to reclaim this mandate is not about me as a person but, about millions of Nigerians who placed their trust in me through their votes.

“There may be more mud-slinging from those who are against the emergence of the New Nigeria but, I would never be deterred by the obstacles along the way to victory. I have always lived my life in the most law-abiding manner.”

The Labour Party in a statement last week disclosed that Obi was harassed and detained by London immigration officials over alleged impersonation.

The party revealed that their presidential candidate was interrogated for a long time and was released following the intervention of Nigerians.

While Obi did not speak directly on the cause of his detention, he, however, said “sometimes as humans, we make mistakes but, I will never knowingly break any law.”

He said he is not afraid of the lies and propaganda against his person because “it is part of the journey to a New Nigeria.”
