Charles Idahosa, the former political adviser to the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has accused the camp of the chairman of APC of spreading fake news.
Idahosa who was reacting to the alleged attack on Oshiomhole in Benin-City at the weekend called on the camp of former governor to stop concocting stories of attack he said never happened.
“The State Commissioner of Police has come out to state categorically that there was no such attack on Oshiomhole. The state government has also denied knowledge of such an attack. But these people keep insisting that the former governor was attacked. They have brought in other actors to corroborate what never happened. That is the height of spreading fake news.
“It is obvious that they are concocting these attacks to get public sympathy. They should quit the charade. We want to warn them not to heat up the polity. The Edo State Government is led by a man who puts a premium on law and order, as can be seen in Governor Godwin Obaseki’s numerous reforms as well as other public engagements” he said.
