Edo APC crisis deepens as thugs attack Oshiomhole, other lawmakers

A report emanating from Edo  State indicates that 15 Iawmakers-elect, including Mr. Seidu Oshiomhole representing Etsako West II in the state House of Assembly, were attacked by some suspected hoodlums

Seidu is the younger brother of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The Edo State House of Assembly has been in crisis in recent times following the reported factionalisation of the APC in Edo state.

Some of the lawmakers said to have sustained serious injuries were rushed to the hospital for treatment where they are still recuperating.

According to the report, the 15 lawmakers attacked were loyal to the APC national chairman, and they were reportedly not invited to the inauguration of the state Assembly on Monday, where nine members reportedly elected Hon. Frank Okiye as Speaker.

During the violent assault, the elected legislators, who vowed to resist the emergence of Okiye, a loyalist of Governor Godwin Obaseki, were severely beaten up by the thugs.

An aide to one of the lawmakers, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the lawmakers-elect were having a meeting in a hotel in the state capital, Benin City when the incident occurred.
