Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki, the Governor of Edo State has requested for the arrest of the National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
This is coming following the political crisis in the state centered on the struggle between the incumbent Governor and the former Governor.
Obaseki has sent a petition to the Inspector-General of Police and Director-General of the Department of State Services which made the official request.
The petition was made by the Edo State deputy governor, Philip Shuaibu.
The petition claimed that the APC National Chairman had consistently breached the peace of Edo State by ignoring lawful orders of constituted authorities.
It has been common knowledge that Obaseki and Oshiomhole have been at loggerheads for a while with the current Governor claiming that the APC national chairman was attempting to upset the state by being a Godfather.
