Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has escaped death.
His campaign convoy was attacked by gunmen in Apana, Ward 10 in Etsako Local Government Area of the State (Oshiomhole’s ward).
Insiders told us that the thugs were dislodged by a combined team of security personnel and Vigilante groups who repelled their sporadic gunshots.
However, addressing the people at Apana Village square, the Governor said;
“As we were coming here (Village square in Opana), you heard what happened. “They went to hire thugs and began to shoot to prevent us from coming here.”
“On September 19, 2020, use your Permanent Voter Cards (PVC’s) to pepper them. “Ward 10 is a special Ward. This election is special. It will show between who is in charge of politics in Edo State.”
“For all my eight years in Government, you know what I did for Comrade Oshiomhole. He said it with his mouth. “I supported him to be the governor. I raised fund for him. I worked for him and Edo State for eight years without receiving a dime”.
