Supporters of the Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi have begun calling on Twitter to ban a former presidential aide Reno Omokri, claiming alleged inciting comments.
Mr Omokri has been very critical of Mr Obi since the latter left the Peoples Democratic Party, which Omokri is a member of, to join the Labour Party.
On Friday night, Omokri tweeted that two men, he believes were sent by Obi, have been on his trail in the UK. He added that the former Anambra State governor should be held responsible if anything happens to him.
“Again, I reiterate that if anything happens to me, my wife, my children, or my siblings, the world should hold Peter Obi responsible.
“To those two men who followed us, you were caught on CCTV and your image is with the Metropolitan Police. Continue being Obidient!” Omokri tweeted.
Despite his claims, Obi’s supporters have continued to pressure Twitter to take action against him.
