El-Rufai Reacts As Video ‘Vindicates’ Peter Obi Of Alleged Anambra House Arrest
Nasir El-Rufai

More information has come to light after Nasir El-Rufai, the governor of Kaduna State, made the outburst in which he claimed that Peter Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate, had ordered his arrest in 2013.

Recall that El-Rufai said he would have arrested Peter Obi in Kaduna State, as allegedly done to him in Anambra State, on Monday while speaking to the Arewa Joint Committee organised for presidential candidates.

Recall that the El-rufai had gone to Anambra State in 2013 to lend support for Chris Ngige, the current Minister of Labour, who ran against Peter Obi on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, during the governorship election.

In reaction to the allegation by El-rufai, a Twitter user, Adetutu Balogun, posted an old video that captured El-Rufai blaming authorities from Abuja for being responsible for his alleged house arrest.

In the video, El-Rufai was heard saying “I left my hotel room to go and get my breakfast and I was blocked by three SSS officers with AK-47, threatening me that they have directive from Abuja to restrict me to my room”.

Reacting to Balogun’s tweet, El-Rufai took to his verified handle to claim that he has video evidence of Obi claiming responsibility for the alleged unlawful detention.

He wrote, “Yes but your little god Peter Obi later revealed on national TV – we have the video clip – that he got the unlawful detention effected, and said I had no right to be in Anambra State since it was not Katsina State.

“The clown didn’t even know that I am from Kaduna State.”
