Peter Obi never took picture with Simon Ekpa —Media Office

Obi-Datti Media Office has described as false and fake, a picture shown on social media of Mr. Peter Obi with Mr. Simon Ekpa, the Finland-based pro-Biafra agitator.

Obi is the Labour Party, LP, candidate for the February 25, presidential poll, while Ekpa is responsible for calling for sit-at-home orders in the South-East region.

Obi-Datti Media Office described the pictures as fake.

Head of the Obi-Datti Media Office, Mr Diran Onifade, in a statement on Thursday in Lagos, said the makers of the fake photo inserted Obi’s popular supporter and rights activist, Aisha Yesufu, to the fake picture.

According to him: “The scenario is exactly what played out in the photoshopped picture of Peter Obi supposedly standing with the Finland-based irritant Biafra agitator, Simon Ekpa.

“This is all in a desperate move to drag Obi’s name into disrepute by linking him with the ugly story that Ekpa has become in Nigeria.”

“For clarity, the picture was taken by Obi standing with an admirer on a Virgin Flight on Friday, July 21, 2023,” he added.

The original and fake pictures

He said: “In trying to authenticate their filthy and disgustingly dirty act, they inserted the picture of Aisha Yusuf behind them.

“The memory may be short to forget that Obi was the first to describe the sit-at-home thing as an act being engineered and bred by a criminal that the system has refused to squarely tackle.”
