The national chairman of All Progressive Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has raised an alarm that Edo state governor, Godwin Obaseki, was plotting evil against him.
The rift between the Oshiomhole and Obaseki is no more news as the duo have made different statements against each other.
Also, it was learnt that the APC chairman claimed that there was a siege to his residence in Benin on October 12.
Oshiomhole said: “We have it on good authority that the governor (Obaseki) intends to create disaffection and crisis in the state, APC and probably dump the party for another party.
“That is why; he has embarked on this brigandage which Edo people will resist. So, he should stop blackmailing me and face governance which is why Edo people voted him into power.
“We are even more scared now that the governor is making every effort to coerce me into giving him details of my movement in Edo State. Who knows what he is plotting again. But every evil plot against me will fail.
“Before that incident, state government-sponsored thugs have been harassing, intimidating APC members across the 18 local government areas of the state because APC leaders refused to adopt his second term aspiration.
“People are being sacked from their jobs everyday in the state.”
