Mr. Obidinma worked as Special Assistant on Political Matters to, Imo Deputy Governor Prince Eze Madumere from 2013 until his dismissal in June 2015.

He was arraigned in court in November 2016 for allegedly defaming his former principal, Prince Madumere.

In a press statement signed by the Group’s President, Mr Daniel Ezekwe, it claimed Obidinma turned a professed critic, and was slamming the deputy governor.

The statement read, “Since November Mr Obidinma has not been able to fulfill his bail conditions and has been in prison custody pending the fulfillment. Efforts are being made by concerned persons to get a variation of bail conditions for him… An activist has to highlight the wrongdoings in the society to bring improvement in the system but when an activists starts targeting his former boss for vested interests, it is wrong.”
