The alleged feud between former Governor Peter Obi and Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra state seems to have taken a new dimension.
Obi’s kinsmen have issued a warning to Governor Obiano over the alleged threat to banish their son from the state.
An aide of the Governor had earlier slammed Obi over an unwarranted statement, reports say.
According to Punch, the former Governor’s kinsmen under the aegis of Agulu Leaders of Thought, reminded Obiano that it was Obi that made him Governor.
The group, through its Secretary, Joachim Emegwamuo, also issued a statement saying “When the news of the threat to the life of our son, Mr. Peter Obi, started circulating, we ignored it as one of those rumours until Chief Joe-Martins Uzodike made it clear during a radio programme.
“We are aware that it was Obi who single-handedly made Obiano governor and we are also aware of several indignities Obi is suffering under the governor, ranging from lack of respect to continued and inexplicable witch-hunt.
“Obiano has deliberately allowed his aides to abuse Obi to the point of openly denying the over N75bn bequeathed to him.
“Obiano has abandoned the projects started by Obi upon which he was elected, thus portraying Obi as an unreliable leader among the Anambra people.
“If anything happens to Mr. Peter Obi or any of his aides, Obiano should be held responsible.”
Speaking on the issue, former Governor Peter Obi said Governor Obiano cannot bar him from Anambra or talking about the state.
