Gov Obaseki Tells Oshiomhole: He Has Lost His Political Grip On Edo State

Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has said that his predecessor and National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has lost political grip on the state, but now resorts to deploying police operatives from Abuja to harass his aides.

The Governor, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, added that Oshiomhole’s intent was an “attempt to plunge the state into chaos and cause panic in [his] camp.”

He stated this in response to the arrest of his security adviser, Andrew Momodu, over the weekend by operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) with the intent of whisking him to Abuja.

Osagie’s statement had alleged that Mr. Momodu was arrested in a gestapo style.

According to him, “When Momodu resisted the unlawful arrest by the security agents, he was taken to the Police Headquarters in Benin, where he was held for an extended period until the Edo State Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu intervened.”

“Investigations revealed that the security from Abuja have orders from above to pick up not less than 50 persons loyal to Obaseki, in an attempt to plunge the state into chaos and cause panic in the governor’s camp.

“Those penciled down for arrest, according to sources privy to the policemen’s modus operandi, including Special Adviser (SA) to the Governor on Political Matters, Edo South, Hon. Osaigbovo Iyoha.

“Others on the list are Albert Obazee, Kelly Okungbowa (popularly known as Ebo Stone) and Muktar-Osagie Muntari, who heads the state’s Public Works Volunteers (PUWOV).”

Obaseki and Oshiomhole have been at loggerheads over who controls the structure of the party in the state.

  1. I expect this man to start locking up all the main cabal, all the thug in edo state are already with oshomole and there is nothing free and fair under buhari, arrest these thugs a rather than arguing with them lock them up until after elections cox these are the main people to handle ballot snatching .
    Be there arguing good governor way wan win award

    1. Arrrst who? Did you read the post?
      Oshobaba is already working with that modus operandi.
      Osho has the police, so what will Obaseki use in arresting Osho's people? Civil defence?

  2. When two Elephants fights, it's the grass that suffers.... Oshiomhole should keep disgracing himself and the people of Edo state.

    1. Teejay Obaseki knows how he got there and shouldn’t have expected anything better. Not sure he will make 2nd term. He is a technocrat and doesn’t understand the dirty game politicians play. He should just leave them and go back to his Financial industry.

  3. Why are they always interfering in state affairs

  4. The dirty game of politics is what brought Obaseki as Edo state governor, now he is fighting the means by which he came to be...🤔 I will just sit back and watch how that unfolds

  5. Soho is being served what he served Tony Anenih. He was the one that killed godfatherism in Edo . He should just keep quiet . What goes around comes around!!!
