Mr. Ugoama Stephen, One of the commanders of the Obi-dent movement, said that that they only came out with the Nigerian flag to indicate their support for a preferable Presidential candidate.

He disclosed this during his speech to journalists in Abakaliki, at the venue, he called on the state governor, David Umahi to attend to the issue and criticized the attack on the youths of the state who, according to him, came out only with the Nigerian flag to demonstrate their support for a preferable Presidential candidate.

He said: “My phone was smashed by the police this morning. We demand that the people that they (police) have arrested be released unconditionally because they have done nothing wrong..

“Nobody came out here with even a stone. We didn’t come out here with a pin. we just came out with the Nigerian flag and the symbol of the Labour Party, LP.

“This movement was also held in every other part of the country, including the state that we have a presidential candidate and they were not fired. Nobody disturbed them because it is a peaceful rally.

“Why is Ebonyi’s case always different? The Governor, David Umahi needs to address this. As he (Umahi) said before that Ebonyi votes belong to APC, he is an individual and he should allow us to support a candidate that is our choice.
