Daddy Freeze classifies Peter Obi's supporters

Popular Nigerian radio presenter and social critic Ifedayo Olarinde, better known as Daddy Freeze, classified supporters of Peter Obi into 3 groups: the Obidients, the Zombidients and the Obidiots.

According him, Obidients are amazing guys who truly understand Peter Obi's philosophy and support him passionately.

Zombidients are those who support him cluelessly with their eyes closed and do not understand what the man even truly stands for.

He said the last group, the Obidiots, are thugs, touts lurking online waiting to attack anyone who doesn't support their candidate.

The OAP's classification did not go down well with Obi's supporters and they took to social media to criticise him.
