Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki has said the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole intends to escalate the security situation in the state after he said in the past that he is going to make the state ungovernable.
Obaseki who was reacting to the alleged attack on the APC Chairman last weekend during his visit to the state maintained that Oshiomhole was never attacked. In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media, Communication and Public Affairs, Crusoe Osagie, Obaseki warned Oshiomhole against trying to undermine the peace in the state.
“Oshiomhole has intention of escalating security situation in Edo State as he has said in the past that he was going to make the state ungovernable.
“When he wants to come to the state, he does not inform the governor, the police or the DSS but the thugs. As a former governor he ought to be informing the governor and security agencies each time he is coming into the state .
“The commissioner of Police has declared the state peaceful but Oshiomhole and his cohorts were bent on making it ungovernable. But this l know the governor and security agencies would not allow.
“Oshiomhole as a former governor should not undermine the capacity and integrity of the Police unless otherwise he is looking for anarchy in the state”, the statement said.
