Following the recent happenings in Edo State that claimed lives of two persons, the Edo state governor, Godwin Obaseki, has decided hold soneone responsible by ordering the security operatives in the state to arrest his predecessor, Adams Oshiomhole, for ‘deliberately instigating the protest’ that erupts Benin City, the state’s capital on Wednesday, February 15.


Recalling that at least two persons were shot dead during the protest over the scarcity of new Naira notes.



According to the Commissioner for Communication and Orientation, Chris Nehikhare, Obaseki, from investigations, the protest was politically motivated.


In his statement he said, “the call for Oshiomhole’s arrest and questioning becomes necessary following a viral video where the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) instigated the people to go on a rampage.


“We have been around the city all day, speaking with some of the protesters and we have done our investigations. We discovered that it is more than meets the eye.


“At this juncture, we will like to call on security agencies to call Adams Oshiomhole for questioning. He should be arrested and made to account for his movement in the last few days especially here in Benin City. Oshiomhole deliberately instigated the protest of the people.”
