Some armed political thugs have reportedly attacked the Benin City residence of the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
Led by one Muktari Osagie and Ebo Stone, the thugs were seen chanting anti-Oshiomhole songs, declaring their motive without any form of restraint nor discretion.The thugs were said to be supporters of Governor Godwin Obaseki, his Deputy, Philip Shaibu and the Secretary to the State Government, Osarodion Ogie.
Igbere TV, however, gathered that the APC national chairman was not at home when the thugs arrived. He was said to be attending a friend’s occasion at a nearby residence.
The thugs said to be state-sponsored, remained at Oshiomhole’s residence, chanting various songs apparently awaiting to accost the national chairman upon his arrival.
“But for the swift intervention of a combined team of army and policemen, the thugs would have vandalized the building”, a source who pleaded anonymity told Igbere TV.
According to a police source, “Information spread to us and a combine team arrived the scene. We dislodged them and the situation was brought under control”.
