The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has again raised the alarm over alleged plot by the state governor and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Godwin Obaseki, to attack chieftains of the APC in Edo State.

Vice Chairman, Communication and Publicity of the APC campaign for the election, Mr. Patrick Obahiagbon, who made the allegation on Friday at a press briefing in Abuja, claimed that Obaseki was importing arms and that hoodlums would be deployed on the day of election to disrupt the process.

He said: “Less than one month to the Edo election, and with defeat staring Mr. Godwin Obaseki and his party, the PDP, in the face, they have both abandoned their pretense at democracy and guided participation in the election, and brazenly embarked on the execution of their plans to prevent the people of Edo State from delivering a verdict on the four-year misrule of Obaseki at the polls on the 19th of September with violence and other criminal acts of intimidation.

”We have it on good authority that the Edo State government and members of its kitchen cabinet have drawn up a list of prominent APC leaders across Edo State that they have targeted for maiming, physical assault, kidnapping and sponsored robbery attacks whilst also tinkering with the idea of using heavy duty trailers to orchestrate road accidents of APC leaders, before or on the day of the election.”
