The Former National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has been accused of intimidating Mrs. Maryann Shaibu, who is the wife of the Edo State Deputy Governor Philip Shaibu.
Consequently, Mrs. Shaibu petitioned the State Commissioner of Police to investigate the matter. In the petition titled “Threat to Life”, dated September 8 by her counsel, Idemudia Illueminosen & Co, Mrs. Shaibu disclosed that Oshiomhole had threatened to deal with her after casting accusations on her at a rally in Etsako West Local Government Area of Edo.
The petition read: “We are further informed by our client that the said Oshiomhole did not only threaten to deal with her but he has also declared that he has sent some thugs to monitor her movements in Etsako West with a view to carrying out the threat of dealing with her.”
Moreover, the plea also added that “It is on this note, that we passionately appeal to you on behalf of our client, to use your good office to investigate this incident. An investigation is also necessary with a view to bringing the said Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and his cohorts to book to avert any unpleasant and unforeseen harm coming to our client especially as the Edo State gubernatorial election is by the corner; precisely on the 19th of September, 2020.”
However, Oshiomhole’s Media Aide, Victor Oshioke reacted to the accusation and said the former governor is focused on marketing the governorship candidate of the APC and cannot, under any circumstances, be distracted by the “buzzing of baby mosquitoes Mrs. Shaibu.
“This petition is nothing but a futile attempt to divert the attention of Nigerians from the trending video of Maryann Shaibu threatening to flog women old enough to be her mother if they dare exercise their fundamental human rights to attend any event other than the one she organises,” he stated.
