As Peter Obi’s fans waited for the former governor of Anambra State to arrive, a man who has not been identified was taken into custody with a dagger. This caused commotion at Peter Obi’s campaign rally in Ibadan.
Bishop P. O. Enang, a Twitter user, claimed that the man was standing in the way of the Labour Party’s presidential candidate for the 2023 election, as shown in a viral video of the incident.
He implied that the individual intended to stab Mr. Obi but was stopped in his tracks.
The young man, whose identity has not yet been revealed, was reportedly standing in the walkway as Peter Obi approached.

Enang also warned rivals against taking careless actions with the life of the former governor of Anambra State.
He said, “Face of the guy who was caught with the dagger 🗡 in Ibadan today. he is not, DSS, not Police, not a bouncer not a security personnel. Uploading video soon. He just stool where PO will pass, the walk way. If una try this nonsense with us, world war 2 nah play.”
However, the campaign council of the Labour Party and the Nigeria Police are yet to confirm, or comment on the event.
Earlier, the Labour Party (LP) campaign organisation said the aircraft it was meant to take for a rally in Oyo State was grounded by the “powers that be”.
Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the LP, and his entourage were heading to Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, from the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja when the incident happened.
The jet was grounded for “regulatory reasons,” according to Diran Onifade, director of media for the LP campaign, in a statement on Wednesday.
Onifade also urged LP supporters to disregard “mischievous rumors” that the jet had been seized
