Group Asks Obi to Sue Those Behind Leaked Phone Conversation


By Nurat Uthman

A group, the Global Network for Sustainable Development, has regarded as illegal and an infringement of privacy, the trending audio of a leaked telephone conversation between the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi, and Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith Church.

The group in a statement by its convener, Philip Roberts urged Obi to press charges against those behind the leaked audio.

According to Roberts, Section 37 of the Nigerian Constitution, 1999 (as amended), allows every citizen of Nigeria entitled to their privacy, be it in their homes, communications with people by way of letters, telephone or telegraph is protected and guaranteed by the Constitution.

Roberts said, “Those who leaked the purported telephone conversation acted in breach of a citizen’s confidentiality and right to privacy, and it is malicious, callous, and criminal.

“For placing Obi’s purported private conversation in the public domain, those behind this despicable plot are liable to criminal prosecution.”

He further alleged that the leaked video was a blackmail by the ruling All Progressives Congress orchestrated to distract Nigerians from challenging the party’s controversial victory at the presidential poll.

He added, “The purported leaked audio conversation has APC’s blackmail mill written all over it. It is a shame that a party that claimed to have won an electoral victory has resorted to underhand practices and cheap blackmail against a purported loser instead of defending their purchased victory in court.

“We are even more angered by Femi Fani-Kayode’s call to security agencies to ‘declare Obi a master terrorist’ for purportedly describing the election as ‘a religious war’.
