VOICE NOTE: Journalist confirms certain security agency compromised the telco company to leak audio of Peter Obi and Bishop Oyedepo saying 'Thank you daddy, Yes daddy'

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Journalist confirms certain security agency compromised the telco company to leak audio of Peter Obi and Bishop Oyedepo saying 'Thank you daddy, Yes daddy'. (Read More Here).

PidomediaNigeria wrote: "A certain security agency in Nigeria (Name withheld) compromised the telco company Peter Obi's line is subscribed to, to get his call records (CDRs) since he joined (LP) to contest for President, till just recently. They took time to listen to his telephone conversations. (Read More Here).

"They were hoping to hear him support, or call for interim national government, through his phone conversations. So they can have every reason to arrest him, and charge him for treason, alongside the people he must have discussed with. But they found nothing against him.

"They found nothing tangible to nail him with. They listened to his phone conversations with notable Nigerians, both locally, & across the globe. They found nothing. Not even protest. Someone from that agency, leaked that audio, but it was badly edited to suit a certain narrative.

"The phone conversations between Peter Obi and Bishop Oyedepo, was about the Muslim-Muslim ticket. OBI SAID, IN A SOCIETY LIKE NIGERIA, RELIGIOUS BALANCING WAS A NECESSARY CONSIDERATION. BUT THE RECKLESSNESS OF THOSE PUSHING FOR MUSLIM-MUSLIM TICKET, HAS MADE SOME CHRISTIANS TO ASSUME THIS ELECTION IS A RELIGIOUS WAR. But the people behind this propaganda, carefully edited, cut and joined the conversation, to appear as if Peter Obi, was calling for a religious war. Just to paint his candidacy, as religiously driven movement."

Religion became central to the campaign after Bola Tinubu tapped a fellow Muslim running mate in a nation widely deemed evenly split between Christians and Muslims. 

FIJ subjected the audio to a deepfake test using Deepware, an AI tool used to detect alterations in audios and videos. Deepware’s deepfake detection technology “was designed to detect deepfake videos or, simply, any fake content in the areas of visual and audio communication“.

According to Deepware, the audio was not AI generated, and it underwent no technological alterations.

The Cable, a Nigerian newspaper, had used the same tool to detect that a supposed audio conversation of Atiku Abubakar, a former Vice President of Nigeria, Aminu Tambuwal, the Governor of Sokoto State, and Ifeanyi Okowa, the Governor of Delta State, plotting to rig the 2023 presidential election was a deepfake.

Mr Obi, the Labour Party’s standard-bearer, saw the February 25, 2023, exercise as a battle to assert the place of Christians in the country, bootstrapping his candidacy out of a polarised cycle set off by Bola Tinubu’s religiously-tinged Muslim-Muslim nomination. The election was largely a three-way race between Messrs Obi, Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar, a former vice-president who ran again on the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party line. 

Mr Obi, 61, called Bishop David Oyedepo of Living Faith Church (Winners’ Chapel) on the eve of the election and implored him to pass messages to Christians across the South-West — and also to those in central states like Kwara, Kogi and Niger. 

“Daddy, I need you to speak to your people in the South-West and Kwara, the Christians in the South-West and Kwara,” Mr Obi said in the audio obtained by The Gazette. “This is a religious war.”

“I believe that, I believe that, I believe that,” Mr Oyedepo said. 

“Like I keep saying: if this works, you people will never regret the support,” Mr Obi said with candour, adding that Christians in places like Kogi, Kwara and Niger have been difficult to penetrate. 

“We look forward to God’s intervention,” Mr Oyedepo said, promising to circulate more messages to Christians on Mr Obi’s behalf.

For two days, Mr Obi did not attend to The Gazette’s calls and messages to his two available telephone lines. His media aides and allies, including Akin Osuntokun, Valentine Obienyem and Mike Ifedi, all declined comments when The Gazette sent an enquiry to them with the full audio. 

Mr Ifedi said he was trying to discuss the audio with Mr Obi for a measured response, but his message did not come in before a final decision was taken to run this story. 

In the viral audio, both men can be heard discussing ahead of the February 25 presidential election about the Christian voting community in Nigeria’s southwest and north-central regions, and how to get them to support Obi.

Obi can be heard saying, “It is a religious war,” to which Oyedepo replies, “I believe that.”
