Governor threatens to arrest PDP members

Apparently, some members of the PDP were arrested for allegedly disrupting government officials from mounting electric poles.

Edo State former governor, Adams Oshiomhole

Oshiomhole said this in reaction to an announcement by the PDP that it will hold a mass rally to protest the arrest of their members.

The Governor also said the PDP members who were arrested have been charged to court to serve as a deterrent.

According to Daily Post, Oshiomhole said “As long as I am here, there is no exemption for anyone. Nobody has the right to behave like an emperor.

“We were carrying poles to extend electricity to some villages but they (PDP) arranged some boys to block the vehicle.

“They forced the driver to stop, attacked one of our commissioners and said nothing will happen?”

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State had earlier accused Oshiomhole of failing people of the state.
