Attack on Oba Akiolu, others: Shaibu apologise to commercial motorcyclists for being called thugs

The Edo State Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu, has apologized to commercial motorcyclists on behalf of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole for describing them as thugs.

It happened when the convoy of the state governor, Godwin Obaseki, was attacked by motorcyclists at the home of Oshiomhole, after the Edo state university’s convocation ceremony.

The deputy who hosted the motorcyclist union at the government house in Benin City, explained to them that the comments were a slip of tongue from the part of Oshiomhole.

He said: “I want to correct the news by our national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole that the Okada riders are thugs, you are not thugs and I want to apologize on his behalf and to tell you people maybe it was a slip of tongue.

You people are never thugs; you cannot be thugs because of what we have done with you and you are technology-driven and you are talking, you can’t be referred to as thugs; not even when he rode on your back to victory at the tribunal. Every morning, you were always at his house in your hundreds and most cases we rode on your back to the tribunal. So, how come now you are being referred to as thugs, I think it was a slip of tongue, so on his behalf, I apologize to all of you.”
