Edo 2020: Oshiomhole Threatening My Life – Dep Gov’s Wife
Mrs Maryann Shaibu, Wife of Edo State Deputy Governor, have accused the former Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, of threatening her life.
She made the accusation in a petition dated September 8th and addressed to the Edo State Police Commissioner through her counsel, Idemudia Ilueminosen & Co.
In the petition titled “Threat to Life” Mrs Shaibu said Oshiomhole had cast aspersions on her and threatened to deal with her at a rally in Etsako West Local Government Area of Edo.
According to the petition, “We are further informed by our client that the said Oshiomole 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.
“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.
“Investigation is also necessary with a view to bringing the said Comrade Adams Oshiomole 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 19th of September, 2020.”
Reacting to the petition, Media Aide to Oshiomole, Victor Oshioke, dismissed the allegation.
He stated that the former APC chairman is focused on marketing the governorship candidate of the APC and cannot, under any circumstances, be distracted by 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.
