“Since the beginning of these series of attacks on our members in the state, we are surprised that no arrest has been. Will the police say they don’t know about it?

“We know that if the police want to do their jobs they can do it perfectly, so we are calling on them to do their jobs and save our lives,” he said.

Recall that APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole and the State Governor, Godwin Obaseki have been engrossed in an alleged face-off over who heads the party at the state level.

The alleged face-off had led to the governor threatening to suspend Oshiomhole from the party at the state level.

Despite Obaseki’s threat, the APC National Chairman had insisted that he was not fighting any member of the party.
