Arrest Oshiomhole Now - Edo Group Writes IGP
Buhari Decorates Acting Inspector General of Police

“Arising from an emergency meeting on the dangerous level of political traction in Edo State which has the full weight of Adams Oshiomhole; at a time His Royal Majesty – Oba Ewuare II (Ogidigan), the Oba of Benin has rolled out plans for the annual Igue festival, the Reformed Oghomwan Mandate Group do here and now petition the Inspector General of Police to order the immediate and unconditional arrest of Adams Oshiomhole – for his involvement in the pre-APC rally mayhem which led to bloodletting in Benin City despite the IGP’s order of suspension of the rally. ” Oghomwan Mandate Group said.

The group added “Unless Adams Oshiomhole is bigger than the Nigeria Police act – which clearly empower your office to arrest and prosecute anyone in breach of public peace order, the suspended National Chairman of APC is expected to be arrested immediately and unconditionally for his unbridled daylight terrorism of law abiding citizens around Airport road, Benin City on Thursday 12th December, 2019. Sir, it is public knowledge that, after Pastor Osagie Ize Iyamu ( the notorious serial decamping-politician who seeks to join the APC through clandestine backdoor approach of Adams Oshiomhole) was notified of the suspension of the APC rally, he was accompanied to Garrick Memorial School ground (scheduled venue of the aborted rally) by the war-mongering Adams Oshiomhole and his legion of thugs, on the pretext of inspection of the venue, surreptitiously to attack security personnel around the area. Same day and about the same time, 15 peaceful protesters at the Benin Airport were brutally injured by suspected thugs of Oshiomhole in their bid to intimidate Governor Godwin Obaseki and Deputy Governor Philip Shaibu as well as top members of Edo State Government.

“As a frontline sociocultural entity of Edo South Senatorial District people, it falls squarely within our mandate to raise this formal petition and it is backed by five annexures bothering on video tapes and pictures espousing the glaring violation on the order to suspend the rally as well as evidence of Adams Oshiomhole orchestrated mayhem on law abiding members of the public. We make bold as to say that – if Adams Oshiomhole is not arrested on account of his atrocities including his declaration of native war on the Government of Edo State and Edo leaders of APC, we may be left with no option than to allow victims of his daylight sponsored babarism to seek self help. It is our prayer that the parlous security situation that Adams Oshiomhole and his Edo Peoples Movement gang are seeking to foist on our State do not germinate into a full scale anarchy, Amen.”

The socialcultural group is blaming Oshiomhole for the flagrant disregard for the Inspector General of Police order not to hold rally in Edo STate on Friday.

It could be recalled that the former governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2016 defected to the All Progressives Congress and the rally organized to receive him generated outrage as the APC faction loyal to the governor, Godwin Obaseki accused the Pastor of breaking the procedure for joining the party.

While the IGP withdrew consent for the rally, Edo STate government issued a general notice to house-owners on the consequences of allowing the rally to hold in school compounds and private residence.

The National Chairman remained at his residence. While some claimed he was under house arrest, Oshiomhole alleged he chose not to attend to avoid aggravating the situation.
