OBASEKI CONVOY ATTACK: GUNMEN SPONSORED BY SHAIBU― Oshiomhole’s aide alleges
Victor Oshioke, an aide to the suspended All Progressive Congress (APC) National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, who hails from Apana, has debunked the allegations that the attack on Obaseki’s convoy by thugs was sponsored by Oshiomhole.
Oshioke in his reaction alleged that the “gunmen” were sponsored by the deputy governor of Edo State, Comrade Philip Shaibu, and that the vehicle they used was in the convoy of the governor.
Oshioke told Vanguard on phone, last night: “The attackers were actually in the governor’s convoy, they drove ahead of the governor’s convoy from Ayoguiri and when they got to the village they started by destroying the billboards I mounted, the one mounted by Chief Lucky James, that of Nick Sedi and that of Jerome Adegboyega. “Then they started shooting around, people ran away into the bushes and the governor ended up addressing members of his entourage because the villagers ran away. “They destroyed a vehicle belonging to Wilson Idaewor.
People have just started coming back to the community and we are going to make a formal complaint to the police. “We ensured that our people did not retaliate so that it will not be reported that Obaseki was attacked in Oshiomhole’s ward, which we know was their intention.”
