The governor of Edo state, Godwin Obaseki has ordered the arrest of his predecessor, Adams Oshiomhole, over his alleged mobilization of thugs to attack banks and disrupt the peace in the state under the pretext of protest against the naira redesign policy that led to the death of at least three people died in the
Obaseki, gave the order on Wednesday in a statement by his Commissioner for Communication and Orientation, Chris Nehikhare.
The statement read, “We have been around the city all day, speaking with the protesters, and we discovered that it is more than meets the eye.
“At this stage, we call on security agencies to arrest Adams Oshiomhole for questioning and to account for his movement, especially here in Benin City in the last few days.
“He deliberately instigated the protest of the people.
“I know people will see the protest as a result of scarcity of naira notes, but even if that is the case, Nigerians should know which political party is involved, because it is ironic that the same party that is responsible for this policy is still sending people to destroy Peoples Democratic Party billboards.”
