Protests in Edo turn bloody as protesters clash, injure 12

A melodrama occurred at the King Square in Benin City when suspected thugs clashed with members of the Civil Society Organisation, leaving not less than 12 persons severely injured and 2 vehicles destroyed.

Members of the Civil Society  were protesting yesterday over the pension entitlement  bill passed by the Edo State House of Assembly for former governor, Adams Oshiomhole and his deputy, Dr Pius Odubu,  to  build N200 million and N100 million mansion  at any location of their choice.

Trouble, however, started mid way when suspected thugs obviously in support of the bill clashed with members of the civil society group who had embarked on the peaceful protest.

The suspected thugs who gathered in their hundreds and armed with dangerous weapons unleashed mayhem on the protesters as passers-by ran for their dear lives.

Speaking on behalf of the  protesters, Comrade Omobude Agho lamented the disruption of the protest and attack by  the thugs allegedly sponsored by the state government.

According to Omobude, “You saw how they destroyed cars, I was beaten mercilessly and same with other comrades. We are shocked to see members of the government following them and giving them instructions on what to do”.
