Obienyem said obi also asked his supporters to ignore the news where he was quoted as saying that “he never lost an election”; that he would fight and “bleed to death until” his mandate is restored; that he would drag “INEC until there will be no life left in them”; that he was “looking forward to jailing all that partook in this scam and fraud called election, among others”.

He said Obi described “the news as not only false but also mischievous, misleading and out of character”.

Obienyem reiterated that the LP candidate “would continue to pursue the recovery of the stolen mandate through the legal process”.

“I have worked through similar paths in the past and was successful. I shall follow the same path without endangering the relative peace in the country, which is actually what those election riggers are striving desperately to upset.”
