Peter Obi’s phone was not stolen, Labour Party clarifies

Labor Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, clarified that his phone was not stolen during his appearance at the Court of Appeals for the presidential election in Abuja on Thursday.


A video of Obi apparently complaining to his associates about his lost phone in the courtroom of the Court of Appeals as PEPC went viral on social media platforms on Tuesday.


Obi attended PEPC along with award-winning Nigerian writer, Chimamanda Adichie. However, Valentine Obienyem, a spokesman for Obi, said in a statement that the phone was not stolen.


Rather, he said, one of the presidential candidate’s staffers took the phone away for safekeeping after Obi dropped it during a chat.


“Yesterday the news of Peter Obi’s lost mobile phone went viral. The spontaneous display of solidarity was again proof of the love people had for him,” he said.


“He put the phone down on the table to chat with some people in court, and then one of his aides picked it up for security reasons.”
