The co-convener of BringBackOurGirls Movement, Aisha Yesufu, has warned Labour Party presidential aspirant, Peter Obi, on plans by opponents to truncate his 2023 election campaign.
In a series of tweets and videos, the activist revealed that moves are ongoing to gang-up against his supporters, just like what occurred at the EndSARS protest which took a violent turn.
Peter Obi @PeterObi is allowing himself to be set up! Just like they did with #EndSars protesters, they will unleash violence & say it was his followers.— Aisha Yesufu (@AishaYesufu) July 3, 2022
I might not be in politics but I have been at the receiving end of the violent tactics from the establishment. https://t.co/kmSS8yrjrt
“They are scared. They will gang up as they did during the #ENDSARS protest. They’ll come together and do everything they can to make sure they put the spanner in the wheel.
"What they are trying to do is to portray Peter Obi as a sort of supporter of violence. How? When? Where?
“During the #ENDSARS protest, they kept saying the movement will be hijacked. We saw how the protesters were calm and did everything alright.
"The government brought in the thugs to criminalize the protesters. Police vehicles were used to transport thugs who attacked protesters and caused mayhem. The government ended up blaming the protesters.
“Now they are doing the same thing with Peter Obi. The government is trying to make him responsible for what it didn’t do.
"When they will bring their violence, they’ll now say it’s Peter Obi and put him on the defensive.”
