A man was caught with a dagger at the Labour Party’s presidential rally in Ibadan, Oyo State.
Supporters of the Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi were waiting at the campaign venue for the party’s flag bearer to arrive when they noticed a man in a suit and tie standing on the walkway Obi was expected to pass.
It is not clear what made them search him but, when they did; they found a dagger hidden in his clothing.
He was asked his name in Hausa and was also asked why he was at the event with a dagger but he was not forthcoming with information.

Wike promises Kwankwaso logistics support days after promising Peter Obi same
The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has promised logistics support to the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, Rabiu Kwankwaso.
This comes days after he made the same promise to the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, despite being a member of the Peoples Democratic Party.
Wike had on Friday welcomed Obi to Rivers State for the inauguration of infrastructural projects, during which he made the promise to him.
He said, “They said I said I’m supporting Obi, I have no regret to say: Obi is a former governor, if he is coming to Rivers State to campaign, I will give him logistics support, I will give him security.
“A former governor? Should I say I will not give him vehicles? I will not give him security? I won’t do that; I must give him logistics support.”
“You are a man of integrity, it is unfortunate that we are not in the same party but God will help at the appropriate time. These are the kind of people that should be talking about leadership of the country. I want to tell you that if you are coming for a campaign here, I will give you the logistic support”.
While Obi’s supporters, popularly known as Obidients were still jubilating that it means Rivers State will be for their candidate in the presidential election, Wike welcomed Kwankwaso to Rivers.
Speaking when he received the NNPP candidate, Wike said,
“You are a man of integrity, it is unfortunate that we are not in the same party but God will help at appropriate time. These are the kind of people that should be talking about leadership of the country. I want to tell you that if you are coming for a campaign here, I will give you the logistic support”.
