Comrade Philip Shaibu is the deputy governor of Edo State and running mate to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the forthcoming governorship election in the state, Governor Godwin Obaseki.

He was interviewedS concerning the forthcoming election and the violence happening in the state towards the election.

He was asked “You alleged that Oshiomhole was importing thugs and assassins into the state. How true is this?”

Shaibu said “Remember Oshiomhole is my father and before now I was staying in his house each time I visited the village. I have informants in his house who give me updates on a daily basis about happenings in his house. He waved his immunity to call Osagie Ize-Iyamu a thief in 2016;

I am not waving mine, but I can boldly tell you without mincing words that Oshiomhole is arming youths in Edo State. These same boys are my friends and they tell me themselves. It is true; Oshiomhole is stockpiling arms ahead of the governorship election.

We have reported to the law enforcement agencies and we hope they take action to protect the lives and property of Edo people. The last time we told the security agencies about the assassins that were brought into Edo State by Oshiomhole, they thought we were joking, so we gave them details of these suspected persons which they confirmed.

What happened during the campaign is a confirmation of what I just told you. One of them told me that they were going to do that and I alerted the security agencies that I got information that there were plans to disrupt our campaigns and where they would be coming from. It also happened during the convocation ceremony at Edo University, Iyamho; we were attacked in front of Oshiomhole’s house; that was the day I resolved to stop going to his house.

We were able to get all the names of those behind the attack from the video and a petition was written to the Police but as I speak to you, nothing has been done, instead our own supporters were the ones that were arrested.
