The governor Edo, Godwin Obaseki, has called on the presidency and the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) over the alleged plot by Adams Oshiomhole to cause civil unrest in the state.
Obaseki, in a statement by his media aide, Crusoe Osagie, claimed that the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in collaboration with members of the Edo Peoples Movement (EPM) is inciting some persons in the state against his administration through planned protests, The Nation reports.
The governor expressed fears that Oshiomhole is allegedly aiming at slowing down the pace of development in the state by triggering trouble and civil disobedience.

The Edo state governor also called on the National Security Adviser (NSA) General Mohammed Babagana Monguno, to take note of this and employ immediate actions to stop APC boss from carrying out his purported plans.
However, in defence of Oshiomhole, the APC secretary in Edo, Lawrence Okah, dismissed Obaseki’s allegations, adding that while God will see the party through all ordeals, its leadership will not relent in carefully protecting a clean reputation.
