General Enenche has been removed from Peter Obi Campaign List after an outcry by Nigerians.
Newsone reports that Major General John Enenche (retd.), who described the Lekki shooting incident in October 2020 as being “photoshopped” and “cropped” made the list of the 1,234 members of the presidential campaign council of the Labour Party standard bearer, Peter Obi.
This online news platform recalls that General Enenche, who appeared as Defence Spokesman, was addressing a press conference after the October 20, 2020 incident, and had said, “These videos were cropped and photoshopped.
“If not that I am not permitted, I would have forwarded it to you. Up till this morning, I got analysts to analyse the video and they said it was cropped and put together,” he had said in the now-trending Arise TV video.
Two years after General Enenche’s dismissal of the Lekki massacre, his name appeared on Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council as a representative of the North-Central part of the country.
Moments after the list went viral, Peter Obi’s supporters, christened ‘Obidients’, clamoured for the removal of General Enenche’s name from the campaign council over his alleged role in the defence of the Lekki shooting by the Nigerian Army on October 20, 2020, during the popular #EndSARS protest.
After the outcry by ObiDients and some Nigerians, Newsone Nigeria can report General Enenche has been removed from Peter Obi Campaign List for the 2023 election according to a tweet on the micro-blogging site, Twitter on Thursday evening by Peter Obi Grassroots Mobilization.
