The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammad, made the statement while speaking with the media in London, United Kingdom.

In the leaked audio clip, a voice similar to that of Obi can be heard asking Oyedepo to speak to Christians in the southwest and Kwara to vote for him in the 2023 presidential poll, describing the election as a “religious war”.

However, Obi denies the allegations and claims the audio was doctored, stating that “at no time did he ever say, think, or even imply that the 2023 election is, or was a religious war”.

The LP campaign council has also dismissed the audio as a deep fake and accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of attempting to demarket Obi.

Speaking to journalists in London, Lai Mohammed said Obi should clarify what he meant by saying the leaked conversation was “a fake doctored audio call”.

Mohammed stated that if the audio was fake, it means it never took place, but if it was doctored, it means there was a conversation that was manipulated.

He called on Obi to clarify whether the conversation did not take place at all, or if it took place but was edited.

The minister also claimed that the leaked audio is evidence that Obi’s campaign was based on religion and ethnicity.

”If it is fake, it means it never took place. But if it is doctored, it means there was that conversation but it was manipulated,” he said

“Obi needs to come out and make the clarification on whether the conversation did not take place or it took place, but it was doctored.

“If it was doctored, which part of it was doctored? Is it the beginning, the middle, or the end, or is it the ‘Yes Daddy’ part of it, or where he said it was a religious war?”

“From the outcome of the presidential elections you will see that Obi got his vote mostly from areas where he comes from and his religious leaning,” he said.

”This is not good for the politics of Nigeria and it is very dangerous.

“As a result of this kind of campaign, Nigeria is more divided than ever and people are being heard commenting either based on their religious position or ethnic origin.”
