Edo: I’m Not Behind Alleged Arrest Of APC Members – Obaseki

Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has denied being behind the alleged arrest of some members of the All Progressives Congress in the state.

The Governor’s spokesman, Crusoe Osagie, debunked the report on Thursday while reacting to an allegation by the APC that its members in the state are now being arrested by the Nigeria Police on the orders of the governor.

The spokesperson of the Edo APC,John Mayaki, had earlier stated that the arrest of the party members started on Sunday and was meant to harass its members after the governorship election.

The Governor through his media aide, however, described the allegation as false and baseless.

Osagie noted that it is wrong for the APC to accuse the governor of ordering the arrest of its members.

He further stated that his principal is relishing the victory given to him by Edo Voters and has no time for frivolities.

He said: “The Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has nothing to do with the alleged arrest of APC members in the state. The Police is an independent institution with a clear mandate to ensure the security of life and property in the country.”

“The police is controlled by the Inspector General of Police in Abuja and it is wrong for the APC to accuse the Edo State Governor who is still relishing the victory given to him by Edo voters in the September 19 gubernatorial election, of ordering the arrest of its members.”
