The special adviser to Edo state government on media, Mr Crusoe Osagie has accuse a Chieftain of the APC, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu of being the mastermind behind the recent bombing in Edo state.
The comment from MR Crusoe was in response to the claim made by Pastor Ize-Iyamu on the state government being responsible for the attack on the residence of an APC Chieftain, Engineer Lawrence Okah.
His words: “This is no longer surprising to us as a government. Pastor Ize-iyamu as an individual has become a common denominator when it comes to political violence in Edo state and in particular when it comes to bomb explosion because we have been in this party since the beginning of this administration. There has no be news of bomb exploding on anybody’s premises until Ize-Iyamu indicated interest to join the APC”.
Mr Crusoe Osagie provided a clips where Pastor Ize-Iyamu accused Adams Oshiomhole in 2014 of being responsible for bombing his wife’s clinic. He further said that it was only clear that Pastor Ize-Iyamu was responsible since he teamed up with Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
In his word, “It becomes clear that perhaps the person masterminding this bombing across the state is Ize-Iyamu himself because until He came to join Oshiomhole in his faction EPM, there was no problem”.
However, Osagie Ize-iyamu reinforced that the Edo state government is responsible for the current bombing, maintaining that the government have taken that step to intimidate party faithful who are not in support of his second term bid.
