The Edo State Police Command has said the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole was not attacked at the weekend during his visit to the state.
The Commissioner of Police, Dan Mallam Muhammed stated this on Monday when he addressed journalists following reports of alleged attacks on the APC national chairman. Muhammed said security was beefed around the former governor when he visited the state and warned troublemakers not to plunge the state into crisis.
Muhammed said, “To the best of my knowledge, no one had access to the house of the National Chairman. When he came into the State, we beefed up security around him, from his house to the Oba’s palace, from there to the airport before he left for Abuja.
“Let me use this medium to warn troublemakers that Edo State is very peaceful and calm. The State is the most peaceful in the South-South Region of Nigeria. We will do everything according to the law to ensure that the peace the people of Edo State enjoy is not truncated and any attempt by anyone to cause trouble in the State will be resisted with maximum force”.
