The Special Adviser to the Edo State Governor on Media Projects, Mr. Crusoe Osagie, has said that former Governor of Edo State, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole is meeting with criminal gangs across the State to plot strategies to unleash violence on Edo electorates during Saturday, March 11, 2023 election.
In a statement, Osagie noted that the former governor met with persons whom he had previously described as his ‘infantry brigade’ on how they intend to disrupt the elections in different parts of the state.
According to him, “The information we have indicates that the meetings are being coordinated across different parts of the state and cash is being disbursed with the intention to intimidate voters with thugs. We are not surprised by this turn of events as it is part of Oshiomhole’s modus operandi.
“We are calling on the security agencies to closely monitor Oshiomhole and ensure that he does not carry out his devious plots against Edo voters.”
He added: “Edo people, we are sure, will resist Oshiomhole and his Lions and Tigers by being vigilant and protecting their votes on March 11, after casting their votes.
“Edo voters are wiser and have proven that they can rise against Oshiomhole and his thugs, as was done in 2020. We have rejected the antics of the Lions and Tigers and will do so again. They plan to come with their violence as usual but the people will prevail.”
