Identity theft: Peter Obi provides an update.

Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, in the February 25 presidential election, has claimed that his identity theft experience in the United Kingdom, UK, began in Nigeria.

Obi also stated that the incident is still being investigated by the British government.

The former Anambra State governor made the statement as a guest on a Parallel Facts Media Twitter Space programme on Sunday.

ChinyKo recalls that Obi was detained for hours, and interrogated by the immigration officials at Heathrow Airport, UK on discovering his identity was duplicated in April.

Meanwhile, Obi said he is now extremely careful and managing the incident hoping that nothing goes wrong.

He said, “Thank God nothing happened. I have been managing it; I have been to the UK since then and they too are investigating because when I arrived I asked them and they said they were looking into it.

“That’s all I can say for now. I am also very careful, extremely careful. I’m managing it and I am hoping nothing goes wrong. But it all started from here; that’s all I can tell you. It’s something that started from Nigeria. I’m being careful about it.”
