Aisha Yesufu Blames Peter Obi For The Attack On His Supporters Online
Foremost Nigerian activist and convener of Bring-back-our-girls, Aisha Yesufu has reacted to the ongoing verbal attacks on Peter Obi’s supporters by the supporters of Atiku Abubakar and Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Peter Obi’s supporters have recently been linked to the proscribed secessionist group in Nigeria, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) despite his acceptance across religious and ethnic divides of the country.
In her reaction, Aisha Yesufu blamed Peter Obi for the recent disparaging statements by paid influencers against his supporters. According to her, Peter Obi earlier apologies and cautioning of his followers over their alleged intolerance to opposing views, validated the false claims by his opposition that his supporters are violent and insulting.
“I don’t blame you guys. I blame Peter Obi @PeterObi that came out to be doing those nonsense apologies or cautioning or whatever he thought he was doing. That is what has given every Tom, Dick and Harry the audacity to call his supporters all sorts of names.He gave you the fuel!” Aisha Yesufu tweeted.
Recall that a few of Nigerian activists and social commentators such as Adeyanju Deji, Reno Omokri, and Segun Awosanya who are suspected to be working for Atiku Abubakar and Bola Ahmed Tinubu respectively, have threatened to attack Peter Obi should he fail to caution his supporters whom they accused of being insulting and intolerant.
Segun Awosanya, a self-acclaimed convener of the EndSARS protest later declared a media face-off against Peter Obi and his supporters whom he said were belligerent, arrogant and online bullies.
