Obaseki: We Will Deal With Imported Thugs And Their Sponsors


The Edo State Government also said it would sanction any
individual or group of persons, who violates the regulations
contained in the gazette on political gatherings
The Edo State Government has warned that it will spare no
resources within the ambit of the law to bring to justice any
individual or group importing political thugs through riverine
communities and other state borders to unleash mayhem on
the people.
In a statement on Thursday, the Special Adviser to the
Governor on Media and Communication Strategy, Mr Crusoe
Osagie, said reports of such movements of hoodlums had
been received and the government would ensure that those
culpable of such acts were identified, arrested and
prosecuted.
He said, “The Edo State Government has received
intelligence reports that some unscrupulous politicians are
mobilising hoodlums from neighbouring states to come into
Edo through the riverine communities and other land
borders, to cause mayhem.
“We want to put the public on alert and warn them to be
wary of strange faces and movements in their
neighbourhoods. Once such suspicious persons are
identified, members of the public are advised to alert
security agencies and the government so that appropriate
action will be taken.”
Osagie warned that the state government would exert the
full weight of the law in ensuring that individuals and groups
who violate extant laws aimed at protecting and
safeguarding the people were brought to book.
The statement added,“In this light, we warn those
stockpiling arms and plotting to cause mayhem to be
assured that the government will spare nothing in ensuring
that they are identified, arrested and brought to justice, no
matter who they are.”
The Edo State Government also said it would sanction any
individual or group of persons, who violates the regulations
contained in the gazette on political gatherings aimed at
curtailing the spread of COVID-19 in the state.
