Obaseki not behind alleged arrest of APC members – Osagie

Edo govt, APC in war of words over insecurity

Special Adviser to the Edo State Governor on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, has said that the state governor is not behind the alleged arrest of members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

Osagie said the Edo State governor, 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 lives and property in the country. The police are 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,” he said.
