"Knowing he had no leg to stand on, he allowed himself to be foolishly led to the Tribunal by #Cashactivists, to pursue issues already decided by the Supreme Court, years ago."
Onochie's allegations against Obi
She accused Obi and the Labour Party of collaborating with organised labour to use a warning strike to disrupt the PEPT judgement day.
A call has been made by Lauretta Onochie for the DSS to immediately arrest Peter Obi of the Labour Party for allegedly instigating violence in Nigeria.
"This man, @PeterObi, continues to instigate his headless and consequently, brainless followers to a violent change of government. I have never seen a more desperate individual.
There's something sinister and ominous about a man who came 3rd in a race and wants to be declared the winner, AT ALL COST!
"I think it's high time he was pulled in to answer a few questions. Nigerians want to know why Peter Obi, is this desperate."
Reactions as staunch American supporter of Peter Obi calls for Bola Tinubu's arrest
Meanwhile, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has suffered a lot of criticism since the conclusion of the 2023 presidential polls.
His emergence as president has caused a lot of scepticism among political analysts and enthusiasts about the election's credibility.
Due to numerous criminal allegations against Tinubu, many have called for his arrest, including American psychotherapist Jeffrey Guterman.
