Obidients ignore Police threat, stage rally at Lekki for Peter Obi’s presidential candidacy

Supporters of Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), in their thousands held a rally at the Lekki toll gate in defiance to the Police directive.
Many of the supporters were seen marching in mass numbers marching at the Lekki-Epe Expressway, chanting ‘Obi! Obidient!’
A supporter @Nkemchor shared images from the event, saying that police could not stop them.
Said the supporter: “The police presence at Lekki did not stop youths from gathering. Very proud of this generation. If Lekki is your route join them!”
Tweeted @eklepatience another supporter: “All we want is a genuine leader that’s ready to serve Nigerians we’re not asking for too much nah, just give us Peter Obi. Festac Lagos is Obidient.”
The Lagos State Police Command on Friday issued a directive against organising any form of rallies at the Lekki Toll gate, referencing the subsisting court order that prohibited it.
Indications are ride that the rally is holding simultaneously in other parts of Lagos, like Festac town, Surulere and the National Stadium.
