Obaseki writes DSS, demands Oshiomhole’s arrest

Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki, submitted a petition to the Inspector general of Police and the department of state service.

In the petition sent to the security agency, Obaseki alleged that the All Progressive Congress national chairman, Adams Oshiomole, ignored constituted authorities’ lawful orders.

The petition states that the APC chairman had consistently breached the peace of Edo state.

It came after the state government banned all organized political rallies in the state.

August last year, Obaseki publicly accused Oshiomole of being responsible for the chamber’s crisis after the House of Representatives ordered the Police and state security service to close down Edo State house of Assembly.

Obaseki had said his predecessor needed to hear from all sides in the matter before taking sides.

The statement released by his special adviser on media and communication-strategy, Mr. C Osagie states in part;

“Apart from the fact that he based his conclusion on a false and baseless premise, we believe that he could have shown that he didn’t have a vested interest by merely inquiring from his friend, the governor, directly, or any official of the State Working Committee of our party to what transpired.”

Oshiomhole’s failure to satisfy the basic tenets of natural justice, which makes fair hearing from all sides of a matter mandatory, has exposed his bias in this issue”.
