Oshiomhole Reacts To Invasion Of His Residence, Issues Strong Warning




Adams Oshiomhole, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nigeria’s ruling party, has condemned the attack on his residence in Benin, Edo State by thugs.

Naija News had reported earlier that thugs attacked the residence of Mr. Oshiomhole, a former governor of Edo State on Saturday evening, October 12.

Reacting to the attack while addressing a section of his supporters, Oshiomhole said the attackers and their sponsors want a war.

The APC National Chairman admonished his supporters to be calm and embrace ‘peace’.

His words: “In a moment like this, it is not madness for madness because many of you I see here in 2007, you were already strong. During my second in 2012, you were already strong; Even in 2016, some of you were already deployed as party agents.

“These people want to create what has not happened for a very long time. They want war and want to cause crisis. They are boasting that they want to crush and crush people. Go and buy crushing machine.

“No man born of a woman that can change what God has said. And if God says, no, who can say yes? My own is don’t let them drag you out of the bathroom like Igbo man says and be running after them like the town naked madmen because we are not mad. If it comes to the ‘rofo rofo’ that he wants, they don’t have the number. You know that when you start to tell lies, you will have to lie many times to sustain one lie.

“We will not condescend to their level. But, let me say this. It is clear, Nigeria is a free Country. There is freedom of association. Thee is freedom of worship. There is freedom of religion. There is freedom of expression. So, nobody in Nigeria can harass you. Just be the good guys that you are.

“My weapon which is the truth is more powerful than the weapon of the armed forces in the world. Have I threatened any of you? I have ever sent any of you to prison. How many of you …have I ever said to any of you that if you do not follow me, I will send you to prison?”…But, the tradition of Edo people is that if you do something and your father is not happy, he will call you home and say, my son, don’t do this again.

“As a father or mother, maturity is the ability to change the habit that you are not happy. There is no wisdom to do as if you are an angel who has never sinned? Those who want to cast the first stone, may God bless them.”
