Former chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, has reacted to the allegation levelled against him by Maryann Shaibu, the wife of Edo state deputy governor, Philip Shaibu.
The deputy governor’s wife had alleged that Oshiomhole was behind an alleged threat to her life and family.
Mrs Shaibu in a petition through her solicitors, Idemudia Ilueminosen & co, to the Edo state commissioner of police, Johnson Kokumo, claimed Oshiomhole declared that he has sent some thugs to monitor her movements in Etsako West local government area so as to carry out the threat of dealing with her.
However, reacting through his media aide, Victor Oshioke, Oshiomhole dismissed Shaibu’s wife’s petition as a futile attempt to divert attention from her trending video threatening to flog women if they attend any event other than the one she organised.
“The petition is a calculated attempt to drag down the name of Comrade Oshiomhole. Shaibu and his wife should find another way to launder their family image, which has been badly damaged by their numerous unguarded public utterances, captured on video, threatening violence on the Edo people.
“Comrade Oshiomhole is a man at peace with himself and his environment. He is focused on marketing the Edo governorship candidate of APC, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, and his SIMPLE agenda manifesto to Edo people, for the ultimate benefit of Edo people.
“Comrade Oshiomhole cannot, under any circumstance, be distracted by the buzzing of baby mosquitoes like Shaibu and his wife,” Oshioke said.
