The Labour Party (LP) campaign office has warned that the impersonator could commit a variety of serious crimes and dubious acts in Peter Obi's name, putting his life and reputation in danger.

The campaign office made this statement on Wednesday in response to a report that the former governor of Anambra State had been harassed and detained for hours by immigration officials at Heathrow Airport in the United Kingdom.

It was claimed that Chinyere Stella Okunna, a former aide to Obi, described how the Nigerian politician was held up and interrogated for hours last Friday in London, United Kingdom, over a suspected case of "duplicate identity."

In a statement following the incident, the Labour Party's campaign spokesman, Diran Onifade, said that "He was questioned for a long time and it was very strange for a man who lived in that country for over a decade.

"Since Obi's face was already recognized around the world, especially by Nigerians and other Africans who were at home or in the diaspora and were likely to be Obidients, the crowd quickly raised their voices in inquiry as to why he was being held up. ".

Onifade asserts that Obi's detention and questioning for a duplication offense indicate that someone must have been posing as him in London.

"Since the impostor is still at large, the scenario is unimaginable," Onifade said, "as Obi could be implicated in a number of unlawful acts and even be framed in a manner that could be a huge embarrassment to him, his family, his party, the Obidient Movement, and indeed Nigeria, where he is currently and unquestionably remains the conscience of the people."

The high consequence of the offense, he noted, is that the impersonator may be committing a variety of serious crimes and other questionable acts, which would be recorded in Obi's name.

This comes after the Nigerian government accused Obi and his running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed, of treason last week for allegedly inciting people to violence over the results of the February 25 presidential election.

However, Onifade claimed that by charging Obi with treason, the Nigerian government had "demarketed" Obi.

Onifade said that "Obi's telephone line was also bugged when they were possibly looking for information to portray him poorly before a section of the country who had voted for him massively." Onifade was referring to the audio leak of Obi's telephone conversation with Bishop David Oyedepo, the founder of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, in which Obi was overheard saying that the 2023 presidential election was a "religious war.".

They attempted to convince him to leave the country and take a break as if they were not succeeding in damaging his reputation and possibly placing the traducers under a heavier burden of conscience".
