According to Obi, a group will soon call a press conference where they will claim that he is the brain behind the Unknown Gunmen in southeast. He reported that a southeast governor is part of the purported plot to tarnish h and blackmail him.

“This present effort to blackmail Mr. Obi is by some prominent Nigerians, including a present Governor in the South-Eastern of the country. The informant, whom he said he have no reason to doubt, revealed how five of them were invited to a meeting on how to nail Mr. Peter Obi so that, according to him, his ‘good reputation will be dimmed for good’,” Obienyem said in the statement.
He reported the informant as saying: “Watch out; soon you will see a group call a world press conference, speak of the insecurity in the land, appeal to anybody with information on the causes to help the Government solve it and finally drop the bomb by linking Mr. Peter Obi to the sponsorship of the Biafran movement through offer of money to sustain the agitation and use of Biafran boys for selfish end, including winning of elections.”
“Thev informant have refused to disclose the name of the Governor behind this and the person he is using, he assured: “In the fullness of time, the plot will unfold and the characters will become apparent on its own.” He however added that some of them are not comfortable on the way the tide is flowing and may finally opt out,” Obienyem further said.
He noted that “most of the previous efforts to blackmail Mr. Obi by some prominent people through hired hands backfired, because the truth will eventually prevail”, saying that “the present plot to make trouble for an innocent and peaceful man will similarly come to naught as far as Almighty God remains on the throne to fight for him”
