Oshiomhole tag thugs who attacked them as Shaibu loyalists

The All Progressives Party(APC) chairman, Adams Oshiomhole has said the thugs who attacked the Edo state Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu and the Chancellor of the Edo University, Iyahmo, Dr. Aderemi Makanjuola, are loyalists to the deputy Governor, Mr. Philip Shaibu.

Oshiomhole and the rest had attended the maiden convocation ceremony of the Edo University, Iyahmo and honored a lunch invitation at the home of Mr. Oshiomhole, when the thugs launched an attack on the vehicles belonging to the APC Chieftain kinsmen.

A statement said the deputy governor imported thugs into the community with a view to intimidate political opponents.

Oshiomhole and other guests were already in the hall when at about 11:30 am, the deputy governor stormed the University with over 200 Okada riders and thugs.

The deputy governor rode to the event in one of the motorcycles, then the security operatives denied them entrance at the gate but the thugs started threatening the security operatives but they insisted the deputy governor can enter the venue but they will not allow the thugs to go in.

The thugs later gained access to the premises.

During the convocation ceremony, the Central Bank governor, Godwin Emefiele asked for calmness when the thugs who had gained entrance into the school premises, started disturbing the public.

Oshiomhole left the ceremony through the back gate to avoid being attacked by the thugs who were already at the entrance gate of the university.


  1. Lolz. he left the ceremony through the BACK GATE to avoid being attacked by the thugs. that’s how it will always be for unfaithful politicians. They’ve forgotten they don’t belong to themselves.
    Though the act of violence I condemn oo
