Peter Obi’s staunch supporter, Charly Boy, has vehemently denied calling for a coup in Nigeria after facing severe criticism. The musician took to social media to clarify his statements and criticize news outlets for what he described as “cheap, stupid sensationalism.”
Charly Boy’s initial post, made on Sunday night, expressed his frustration at what he perceived as a lack of divine intervention in Nigeria, contrasting it with recent events in Gabon, Mali, Niger, and Burkina Faso, where military coups had taken place. He expressed disappointment that God appeared to be favoring these countries with change through coups while seemingly ignoring Nigeria’s issues.
However, numerous news platforms misinterpreted Charly Boy’s remarks, leading to widespread allegations that the 73-year-old singer was advocating for a coup in Nigeria.
Setting the record straight, Charly Boy stated, “Dem wan take me do escape goat? How ‘E dey Pain Me’ turn into a call for coup. Der fathers,” on the social media platform formerly known as Twitter.
