Deputy Governor of Edo State, Hon Philip Shaibu, has denied allegations by Comrade Adams Oshiomhole that he caused the attack on Governor Godwin Obaseki and Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu.
Shaibu, who spoke through his Chief Press Secretary, Musa Ebhomeni, said he could not have caused what he described as ‘the unfortunate incident that happened this evening.’
He said: “The Governor, his deputy, Oba of Lagos and their entourage were at the gate of the National Chairman of our great party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole to pay him the usual homage since they were in his domain.
“Surprisingly, the large crowd that gathered at the gate brutally attacked the convoy, destroying three cars in the process.
“The convoy had to quickly turn and came back to the varsity campus. So, how did the DG cause it, could he have arranged his own attack?
“In fact, they were there on the invitation of the Comrade himself.”
