An alleged supporter of Peter Obi, the Labour Party Presidential candidate in the last general election, has threatened to kill the daughter of Nigerian comedian, Oluwaseyitan Aletile, popularly known as Seyi Law, over his political affiliation with President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Recall that the comedian was one of the many celebrities who openly supported the aspiration of Tinubu as the next Nigerian president.
He performed at a dinner held in honuor of his (Tinubu) two-day visit to Port Harcourt on Wednesday night, April 3, 2023.
In the screenshot shared on Twitter, a social media user who is obviously a supporter of Peter Obi, prayed for the death of Seyi Law’s daughter, stating that life would be uncomfortable for his family in the UK where they reside.
The yet-to-identified user added that, since the comedian want to destroy Nigeria, his daughter would also lose her life in the UK.
He captioned the post: “See what one of them sent to my wife. Even more in my DM for not supporting their candidate”
Meanwhile, some Nigerians have called on security operatives to fish out the troll and have him/her face the wrath of the law.

I can’t tell any parent how to react to someone threatening their child but if that were mine, I will not reduce her safety to political banter.”
