“The British Government seems to have realized that the Ibos are the ethnic tribe from Nigeria that has been involved in all the criminal operations in the country,” the report added.
“The investigative department has reportedly stumbled upon leads during their wider investigations, which are being pursued diligently until they have gathered all the necessary evidence.
“Peter Obi’s interrogation was conducted ‘under caution,’ indicating that they are already onto a very important statement for a big case,” the report stated.
“The report also revealed that Peter Obi’s brother-in-law was arrested in the UK with heroin and cocaine, claiming that he was transporting them for Peter Obi, and is currently serving a jail term.

“Efforts to obtain a copy of the petition have been unsuccessful.
“It appears that Nigerian security agencies will be collaborating with British authorities to combat terrorism, arms proliferation, narcotics trading, money laundering, and other related crimes in both countries. The petition is expected to be useful to the British authorities as well.”
… UK Govt Denies Issuing Any Apology For Obi’s Lawful Detention
The UK government has denied issuing an apology for the “lawful detention” of Peter Obi, according to a report by Headlinenews.news’s Imran Khazaly.
Khazaly stated that the UK government has no reason to apologize to Obi, as intelligence received led to the investigation and subsequent detention.
He further explained that there must have been serious evidence against Obi before the detention order was given, as the British system does not issue detention orders on speculative matters.
“The British system is quite different and DOs are part of the build up for a case which would be charged to Court,” Khazaly said.
“He said the British authorities are carrying out their lawful duties and have no reason to apologize to Peter Obi.”
Khazaly added that Peter Obi is subject to investigation, interrogation, and prosecution like any Nigerian found guilty of contravening UK laws.
