Edo State Bomb Blast: State Government Says It Has No Hand In The Attack The Edo State government has dismissed claims by the Peoples Democratic party’s leader, Mr Osagie Ize-Iyamu, that Governor Adams Oshiomhole masterminded a bomb attack in the state on Sunday. After a bomb was detonated by unknown persons at Shalom Dental Clinic, belonging to Mr Ize-Iyamu’s wife on Sunday morning, Mr Ize-Iyamu and some other members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) accused the Governor of masterminding the attack. He made the claims while addressed reporters after the bomb attack. In response to his claims, the Edo State Commissioner for Information, Louis Odion, released a statement rejecting the claims. Mr odion said that the claims was another phase in what clearly had become the desperation of the PDP to spread falsehood and sow fear in the minds of the people of Edo State with a view to simulating a crisis. “For the avoidance of doubt, the Edo State government wishes to state that the report of bomb explosion at the Edo Government House is patently false.
“No sooner had the purported “bomb attack” been reported by an online medium with further claim of bomb explosion within Government House, than Mr Ize-Iyamu quickly called a press conference to point fingers at the Governor, Comrade Adams Eric Oshiomhole, as the mastermind of the explosion at the clinic owned by his wife.
“By Ize-Iyamu’s ludicrous account and his haste to accuse Comrade Oshiomhole of culpability for a supposed crime yet to be investigated, we are persuaded to believe he is merely acting out a script. It is laughable indeed that any sane man will be targeting an obscure clinic that is, at best, now moribund. SEE MORE ON PAGE 2
