Apex Igbo socio-cultural body, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has reacted to the attempted arrest of Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, in London.
It said the move was made by political enemies, but assured Nigerians that they will not succeed.
Ohanaeze said any plot to embarrass and pull down Peter Obi, because he had decided to legally pursue the mandate believed to have been given him by Nigerians, will continue to fail.

Obi was said to have been interrogated at Heathrow Airport, London, on April 7, over his identity.
Obi disclosed this to longtime ally, Prof. Stella Okunna, who served under him in many capacities when he was the governor of Anambra State.
People use his name to commit crime in London and other parts of the world so as to get him implicated in dubious and criminal activities and rope him into any number of offences to get him out of the political space, Ohanaeze held.
