There was a mild drama today at Edo State House of Assembly where a plan by the members-elect loyal to Oshiomhole/Ize-Iyam to take over the state House of Assembly with the move to install Victor Edoro as a factional speaker was foiled by men of the police. You would recall that the Edo State House has been embroiled in crisis since its inauguration where some members failed to show up for the inauguration.
Ize-Iyamu’s Ugbor residence has been a beehive of activities since yesterday because of the planned forceful takeover and subsequent inauguration of Hon. Victor Edoro at his residence but following the failed takeover, Ize-Iyamu and his team have dispersed the crowd who had gathered there to watch the proposed inauguration.
However, a cross-section of Edo residents who spoke on the failed forceful takeover of the Assembly by APC frowned at the desperation of Ize-Iyamu and wondered whether his intention to grab power at all cost is genuine. They warned Edo people to be careful of those who carry bible in the day and gun at night as most of the things we were told by his godfather, Oshiomhole are gradually unfolding before our very eyes.
