Governor Obaseki Escapes Death

Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has escaped death by whiskers.

Sources said; “Governor Godwin Obaseki’s convoy was attacked at Iyamho country home of the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, by some suspected thugs.”

“The Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu Obaseki and Pro-Chancellor of Edo University, Iyamho, Prof. T.O.K. Audu were on their way to Oshiomhole’s house with Obaseki when some youths at the residence allegedly sighted the man alleged to have led the attack on Oshiomhole’s Benin home Andrew Momodu.”

“The governor and the other guests had attended the maiden convocation of the university in Iyamho, Etsako West Local Government Area of Edo State.”

“The governor, Oba of Lagos and other guests had gone to Oshiomhole’s house for lunch when they were attacked by thugs led by one Romeo said to be one of Oshiomhole’s cousins.”

“It took the intervention of the governor’s security to prevent a bloodbath as several vehicles were smashed by the hoodlums.”

“The attack was triggered by the state Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu, who had allegedly led over 200 Okada riders to the venue for the convocation in the morning.”

“Shaibu and the motorcycle riders were said to have been dispersed by policemen who fired tear gas at them. But the Deputy Governor found his way inside (Oshiomhole’s home); he was the one who led the Okada men from various parts of the state to the venue.”

“So when the youths saw Momodu who is the governor’s Special Adviser on Security in the convoy, they got angry.”
