‘Political thugs’ attack Adams Oshiomhole’s residence in Edo State
The home of APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, has been attacked by some suspected political thugs on October 12 in Benin City, the Edo State capital.
The attack has been condemned by the APC which called on the Inspector General of Police, Adamu Mohammed, to investigate the ugly incidence.
“Although, the APC National Chairman has rightly called for calm after the apparent attempt on his life, we call on the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammad Adamu and other relevant security outfits to investigate the ugly incident and prosecute the sponsors and attackers.
“In Edo State, just as in any other state, everyone must be free to go about their normal and legitimate activities without harassment, intimidation, threat to life and property.
“It is clear that the sponsors of the attack are bent on causing crisis in the state in pursuit of their desperate and unpopular political interests. Human life is greater that anyone’s political ambition”, the party said in a statement by Lanre Issa-Onilu, the national publicity secretary.
Report has it that the move were mobilized to Oshiomhole’s house where they rained insults on him and chanted ‘Oshiomhole Ole Oshiomhole Ole’.
They were later dispersed by anti-riot police when they got involved in a clash with pro-Oshiomhole supporters.
