Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has said he would always go for a peaceful resolution of disagreements in the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Edo Governor spoke on Saturday following the attack on his convoy at the country home of the APC National Chairman Adams Oshiomhole.
Concise News reports that the Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu; the Edo Deputy Governor Philip Shaibu and some dignitaries were in Obaseki’s convoy when the attack took place.
They were at Oshiomole’s Iyamho residence on invitation by the APC leader after they attended the convocation of the Edo University, Iyamho.
The thugs who pelted the convoy with stone gathered at Oshiomhole’s house and vowed that Obaseki and his Deputy would not be allowed to enter.
They allegedly smashed several vehicles with no one, however, injured in the attack which took the efforts of security agencies to forestall.
While speaking after leaving Oshiomhole’s house, Obaseki described the incident as unfortunate
“It is really unfortunate that we can’t feel safe at the house of our national chairman,” he said.
“I am not sure that if I went to the house of the National Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, they will attack me the way they did in the house of our chairman.
“It is really unfortunate that thing has degenerated to this extent but we will continue to pursue peace and we cannot afford to lose the gains of the last three years.”
