Faced with imminent defeat in the impending gubernatorial election in Edo State, the APC has hatched a plan to start harassing identified PDP Chieftains ahead of the election.
The run off to the elections which is just a few days away has witnessed heightened tension as the opposition in Edo state has been visiting members of the PDP and other well meaning citizens opposed to their despicable power capture scheme with violence and threat to peace.
Intelligence reports received by this newspaper indicated that top on the list of those to be silenced at all cost by the Edo APC is a founding DG of the PDP Governors Forum, Mr. Osaro Onaiwu.
A source in the know said Onaiwu’s name featured prominently on the list of person’s to be “taken care of” by a security and strategy committee of the Ize-Iyamu campaign.
“Osaro has been a pain in the neck for them. He is one of the people giving Obaseki confidence. They will make sure he is out of circulation on saturday,” the source said.
In a development that seems to corroborate the gag plan of Edo APC, our investigation shows that the said Osaro Onaiwu and a few other leaders of the PDP in Edo state have been invited by the DSS.
Observers say the move is to intimidate these persons and probably incarcerate them during the period of election. The PDP is however resisting this move vowing that no illegal move by agents of the APC in security circles will be allowed to stand.
