Edo deputy governor denies plot to kill Oshiomhole
Deputy Governor of Edo State, Pius Odubu, yesterday debunked allegations that he planned to kill governor Adams Oshiomhole, as build-up to the party primary intensifies.
The deputy governor dismissed the rumour as the handiwork of mischief-makers, who were bent on destroying his cordial relationship with his boss.
Odubu also alerted that there are plots by some persons to circulate fliers round Benin City, the state capital, with a view to further destroying his image and fuel crisis between him and the governor.
Rumour mills had it that Odubu sponsored native doctors to kill Oshiomhole.
The statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary said, “As a practicing Catholic, Odubu will not do anything that is unbecoming of a true Christian in the name of politics.”
The statement added, “God knows that he has never had any pact with any witch/native doctor to kill anyone, or avenge for him and he will never condescend to that extent as long as God lives. It is against his faith.”
According to Odubu, “The Bible teaches that even when the innocent suffers and mischief makers and traducers appear to triumph, by their chief blackmail, it is for God alone to avenge.”
