The Coalition of South East Youth Leaders (COSEYL) has raised alarm over an alleged plot to assassinate the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.

A statement issued on Saturday by the President-General of the coalition, Goodluck Ibem said the Igbos are peaceful does not mean they are weak or senseless.

The group said Obi is a bonafide citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and has the constitutional right to contest any political office.

According to the youths, the country is in dire need of drastic change that will turn things for good and only a wicked person will be comfortable with the current state of the nation.

The youths called on security agencies to immensely move into action and arrest the criminals plotting to assassinate Obi.

The statement reads: “Nobody should think that he or she has a monopoly of violence. That we are peaceful does not mean that we are weak or senseless.”

“Mr. Peter Obi as a bonafide citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and born in Nigeria has the constitutional right to contest for any political office he deems fit and nobody can stop that.

“Anyone who thinks he wants to attack Peter Obi is sick and the sickness will be treated appropriately at the right time.

“Only a wicked and idiotic person will be comfortable with the current state of the nation. Our country is in dire need of a drastic change that will turn things for good and some people are plotting to make matters worse because of their selfish agenda.

“We want these criminals to know that even a mad man is owned by some people and if you touch him thinking that as a mad man roaming on the street, he has nobody, his real owners will come out to defend him.

“We call on the security agencies to immencely move into action and arrest the real criminals plotting to assassinate Mr Peter Obi just because he is contesting for the office of the President which he is eminently qualified to do so. Enough said!”
