National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress APC Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has dismissed the position of the Edo State Command of the Nigerian Police that his Benin residence was not attacked at the weekend, warning the Commissioner of Police, Dan Mallam Muhammed to avoid lending himself as a tool in the hands of desperate politicians.
This was as the state governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki insisted that the national chairman was never attacked as alleged, advising him to always observe protocols whenever he is in the state.
Oshiomhole accused the police boss of downplaying the “very strong connection” between Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and his home that was attacked. “Is Edo CP lending himself as a tool in the hands of desperate politicians?”, Oshiomhole queried in the statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Simon Ebegbulem.
Part of the statement reads; “I don’t want to believe that the Edo State Police Commissioner, Dan Mallam Muhammed, is gratuitously lending himself as a tool in the hands of some desperate and misguided politicians in Edo State whose pastime is to malign the reputation and public image of the national chairman of the APC,
“Apparently propelled by selfish interest, this tribe of politicians has unconscionably ensconced itself in the devious plot of feeding the people of Edo State with a misconstruction of the Comrade Adams Oshiomhole persona in order to galvanise negative public sentiments against him. Commissioner of Police Dan Mallam Muhammed has most probably been taken in by this political gambit of trivializing and rationalizing, by the way he had done, an incident that had serious circumstantial implications for the safety of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
